Claudiu’s Story

I moved to London in 2014, I’ve been an immigrant for 16 years of my life. My father moved to Italy in 1995 when I was only 4 years old. In 2005 all my family moved to Italy. I grew up there, went to school, made friends and then emigrated again. I feel somehow my curiosity of living in a new country plus the fact that I felt identity-less made me decide to leave and keep being an immigrant once again. I am now studying industrial design in London but I’m sure when I will graduate I will emigrate again.
