1994: Irena Mujacic

I am the fifth generation of refugees in my family. I am Bosnian but I am also British! I really feel that I have arrived and that I am standing my ground firmly in This Northern Land. I am like that Angel of the North behind me, burying my roots deep, deep, in the ground and no strong northern winds can uproot me again. I am here to stay. I am also here to battle adversities that Brexit might bring, I will fight to show the sceptics that we are one nation, a nation of Europeans.
