“When I initially moved away from the Caribbean to attend university, I was a bit nervous. I didn’t know what to expect but I thought to myself, moving away from home can be a frightening thought for anyone. Coming to the University of Chester was so similar to being back in the Caribbean in terms of the community vibe."
