My father’s family came here initially because of my Grandfather who was a political refugee.
My Dad married here, my Mum's an English woman. However, growing up we've always been connected to South Sudan.
South Sudanese are not really immigrants; they are refugees, so they have a strong connection to their home. They have such a sense of pride and (when politicians aren't dividing them) they are joined as one.
Young people are really the future. A lot of us have been raised here in the west, we've been raised as one, the way we see each other is different to how our parents see each other, because we don't see any differences between ourselves. If we can keep that between our youth, we're the leaders of tomorrow. It's a golden opportunity, a fresh start, so really we're the future.
