I moved to the UK over 13 years ago and I’ve started my life from scratch many times, changed country, career, family and I know how hard it can be to start again. I learnt that having a strong network of support, friends and family around you can make a big difference to your life.
Since 2018 I’ve been working with women to help them stay connected no matter where they are in the world. Women who, like me, have moved to another country or have a nomadic lifestyle and want to feel a sense of belonging.
When the pandemic hit I noticed how the challenge of keeping connections alive was not unique to migrants anymore but was shared across the globe. We have been told to keep away from one another as much as possible and not to travel so, living in a different part of town might as well be a different country.
