Japa: How I did it – In the Beginning

Moving to a new country all by myself was something I never thought I could do. I mean, coming from my background. It is not something I even ever thought about.

I made a tweet after I got to the UK and I praised myself for making it this far all on my own, and lots of people criticized me for it. They said, “You’re becoming proud; you should just be thanking God,” “Who do you think you are?” “You’re not the first to relocate,” etc.

Well, I may not be the first, but I know what it took, how much struggle I faced, and how many times I thought about giving up. Here’s some background – I come from a very humble background (if you catch my drift), with everyone I know trying to fend for themselves. so, yeah, relocating is a HUGE DEAL for me. It’s always been nothing but a mere fantasy, a little girl’s dream. But, well, I guess dreams do come true, and I might never get over this particular one.

Stick around, I’ll tell you all about the journey in detail, including how I raised the funds and everything else that you may be wondering about.
