Kirsten’s Story

My family and I moved to the uk when I was 3 years old. When we arrived, my dad had £45 in his account and we didn’t have anywhere to stay. We ended up staying with some very distant relatives until we had a small place of our own. The main reason we moved was because my parents, and even me, had had multiple guns pointed at us. The uk is a much safer place.
