Orsolya’s Story

I came to the U.K. 13 years ago with a suitcase and a degree in Early Years. During these years I have been working in my vocation as I am deeply passionate about educating and supporting young children and their families. Whilst I am deeply grateful to this country for welcoming me and enabling me not only to buy my own home and build my own business, I have come across casual xenophobia more than enough occasions. Despite this I feel indebted to this county for giving me opportunities I couldn’t have had back in Hungary.
