My Journey to Living in the UK

January 14, 2020

From the Big Apple to the Big Smoke…

Time is a funny thing, isn’t it? I simultaneously feel like I’ve been living in the UK forever, and only for a few minutes. In fact, it’s been five years… which means, I’m on the cusp of applying for my final visa so that I can live here in the UK permanently. It’s been a real wild ride, so I thought I’d share a little bit about what the journey has been like. Five years on, and honestly, I feel like I’m a whole different person! Moving to the UK was the scariest thing I’ve ever done but it’s been an amazing journey!
