The following testimonies were submitted for “In Limbo” although not published and their authors acknowledged in the book.
To date the result of the Brexit vote has not affected me. Even in the lead-up, in the midst of the Remain and Leave campaigns, I did not experience any negative situations. This may be due to the fact I am based in London, a city traditionally open to and founded by foreigners: the Romans.
I have worked both in France and Spain on short term contracts. I have never had any issues in any of these countries, but perhaps that is because I am passionate about languages and culture, desperate to learn about history and the area I live in. I am a curious person and I have always left a place with more friends than I started out with.
I left my country in 2013 to start a new chapter of my life in London. I was escaping from my home country’s narrow-minded and toxic culture, which never truly allowed me to explore my own self and be fulfilled in my personal and working life. I was looking forward to working hard in order to finally pursue my dreams.
