Serafina’s Story

I came to the UK because it offered better job opportunities than the small Southern Italian town where I grew up. But for years I have missed seeing the sea every day, and speaking my dialect. Sometimes I still dream that I go back home, I open my mouth and only English comes out.

-Serafina, London
