July 31, 2023 /Human interest/ — I was born in Buchi Compound, Kitwe, Zambia, in 1980. It was a small, close-knit community where everyone knew everyone else. I grew up playing with my friends in the streets, going to school, and helping my parents with their small business.
I had a happy childhood in Buchi, but I always knew that I wanted to see more of the world. When I was 18, I decided to move to the UK. I had heard that it was a great place to study and work, and I was eager to start a new chapter in my life.
The first few years in the UK were tough. I didn’t know anyone, and I had to learn a new language. But I was determined to succeed, and I eventually found my way. I got a job, made some friends, and started to feel at home.
Today, I live in Richmond, a beautiful town in Surrey. I have a good job, a loving family, and a bright future. I am so grateful for the journey that has brought me here.
