How I was helped /Their Voices

  • The Northwest Migrants Forum (NWMF) allocated a key worker for me that helped me to find a solicitor and introduced me to a youth club run every Tuesday, to help me make friends and feel as part of a community. Some of the friends I met in the youth club have continued to be my friends and even my best friend whom I am a godmother to her son.

  • I came to the attention of the NWMF in  2011 when I was an unaccompanied minor at the age of fifteen. I was trafficked to the country for domestic servitude and locked in a house for five months. I escaped and I was taken to the police by stranger. At the time I was new to the country, had no family or friends and spoke very little English.

  • Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed.
