Sleeping on the floor

Marcela came to the UK in her twenties to forget a difficult marriage. Initially she had a short-term tourist visa, she then went back to Brazil and applied successfully for a student visa. After 4 years as a student, her renewal application was rejected but she couldn’t see herself to return to Brazil and chose to overstay her visa.  She is a single mother of a UK-born three year old girl.

I’ m more mature now and I have a big responsibility which is my baby who depends on me. But when you arrive by yourself like I did, it’s good for the adventure, meeting different people, and any place is fine. You can sleep on the floor and it’s just fine. You are young and everything is new. It was a worthy experience, so much so that I’m here until today.
