My father was a freedom fighter who helped liberate Swaziland from Britain in 1968. I am extremely proud of him. We had to leave Swaziland when I was eight months old because my parents were in danger. It was very brave of them to move here.

I've been back to Swaziland three times to see my family. Although I don't remember living there it feels like a second home. My parents always talked about where we came from and I am attached to my culture and heritage. Every time I go back I am given such a warm welcome.

I love London too, though. It is such a wonderful mishmash and there are more opportunities here than in Swaziland. Everyone has the right to a free education and it is good that the Government recognises that. In my spare time I enjoy going out to a nightclub in Mayfair and rifling through the stalls in Portobello Road market.
