Colombia Road – Colombian Julie talks about her experience of coming to live in the UK on her own at only 18 during the Colombian depression. It was winter when she arrived, cold and depressing. She paid £100 a week for a tiny flat, which came with its very own rats… She finally received her citizenship after 6 years of living in the UK.
