Photographer: Nigel Shafran
I came to London to learn English and now work for my Embassy. I felt like a star being photographed there (for this project). Double-decker buses, the Queen, museums and parks – these are some of my first memories of London. I love travelling by bus around London – just looking at the beauty of different parts of the city.
London, to me, means a variety of people and cultures, come together. My best friend is from Australia and I have met people from all around the world in London. Sometimes I feel like I don't need to travel to meet people from different cultures, just coming to London was enough. I go to a church with a congregation of 150 or more nationalities – that is wonderful! It's also very different from the local church back home.
