‘I struggle being here; while everyone else is in

England…I’m not with who I want to be. [But] I’ve made this home now.’

Moving from Manchester almost six years ago, the distance of family has left university student Jade Hall 18, with a lack of belonging and sense of place. However, the possibilities and opportunities of moving to Australia have provided Jade with an encouragement in her desire to not lead a ‘repetitive and mundane life’. Undertaking her first year of Communication and Media Studies, she remains determined and optimistic.

 ‘I have kind of created a different sense of belonging.’
