It was my brother who brought me to London. He had been in London for three years already. Once he came to visit and asked me if I wanted to go to London. So I said to myself "why not try it?" and I am here.
Initially I found it to be a totally different lifestyle – with everyone partying. I am from a small village – so there are no house parties or anything like that. It was like a new world for me. Back then I was working on building sites. Now I work as a waiter.
Outside of work, I am a huge car fan – I like seeing some of the supercars in real life. Anything to do with cars – driving them or watching Top Gear – makes me happy. I dream that one day I could be a test driver. I wouldn't say that I'm a Londoner – I am used to my life here but my home (country) is my home.
