    Ep.5 I am British now, on paper

    To become British, you need to pass the “life in the UK” test. It teaches you about the history about the UK, which many British people haven’t got a clue about. Once you have applied, you wait for a decision by the Home Office, what’s it like to wait, and how do you feel when you get a decision?

    Ep.4 Where do you think you're going?

    Ep.4 Where do you think you're going?

    One of the worst nightmares for refugees when traveling abroad is being stopped at the airport. The first time Baraa was stopped by some big men wearing suites, his British friend thought he was getting the VIP treatment and an upgrade. I was asked why do I support the LA Rams football team, and was asked to name some players when I was “randomly” selected for screening.

Interesting and funny

It’s really interesting to hear real life stories.

You did speak my mind!

Sometimes it is difficult to explain how we feel and why we feel that way. You have brilliantly described the “limbo” situation we are stuck in. Not here 100% nor back home 100%.

Looking forward to hearing more!
