I set foot on Brighton soil just shy of April 2022, knowing only 1 person, who was my flatmate and had the world at my feet to discover myself, a new city and life for 6 months. So what does one do when they want to make an impact and meet awesome people along the way? Volunteer!​ The immense support from the group of volunteers is a feeling that I hope everyone gets to experience, for it made me feel valued and seen like never before.
