I came from
My life in Kosovo has been very dangererous for me. Before the
war and since I remember it was very hard to live there. I was persecuted
in Kosovo and everything destroyed. My home was destroyed as well.
To protect our lives we left Kosovo. I got five years in England
Because I didn't know the country and the language... in foreign country
it's a bit hard, but now I'm settled in here. [I lived] in Leicester
four years and before that one year in Coventry. And
after that I moved here in Leicester.
I learned myself to speak English. I haven't been to school or anywhere.
Go to library and take books and watch TV and .... just like that.
I got a hearing this Thursday (17 June 2004). And it's the third
one that I'm having. And I've been told it's not the final one.
So I have to come more after this. I don't know really why it takes
so long. But what I have to do is just wait and hope.
They say I am not who I am. And I say, 'It's me'. I don't know what's
going to happen, so....
I'm single mum, two children. And I haven't got support, anyone
to support [me].
I found it easier when I came here, with home and [refugee] project,
so I've been helped.
For me it's most beautiful place int he world, for me. I haven't
been in any trouble or anything. Those people that I've been talking
too, I just get help from them, so for me it's very good.
