Photographer: Toby Coulson
I came to London to join my family. I have so many memories of coming here – the good and the bad – but my first memories would be back in Stockwell Park High School. It was my first social environment, where I got to know a lot of people and made friends. It's also where I began to learn more about London.
Now I like to travel around the city with my friends or on my own. It's been a long journey since I reached here. I'd like to call myself a Londoner now – I’ve been to school, college and also had my first job here. I hope to gain further work here and find a lovely girlfriend too.
I found the experience of being photographed (for this project) a bit annoying – it’s not often I have my photo taken and the fact that I was told what to do made it strange. But to be honest, it wasn't so bad, and I'm happy to have a photo souvenir.
