I am from… - preview
It’s always a little complicated when people ask me where I’m from
  • I’m never quite sure what piece of information they’re looking for
  • Where was I born? That was Zimbabwe
  • Where are my family from and where are my roots? Ireland
  • Or is it where I live? I live in Scotland
  • None of my family is from there, I wasn’t born there, but it’s where I call home
  • It’s the society and culture I feel the most comfortable and at ease in
  • I’m from all over and I greatly enjoy travelling and spending time with people from across the world, but I think I will always return to those Scottish mountains, the city of Glasgow and the people I met there
