“When I came to Sheffield at 17, fresh out of French high school, I had left my family, my friends, and my language behind. I discovered a vibrant city, warm people, and a home away from home. From being called ‘love’ when interacting with locals, to the welcoming international community, to the affectionate Catholic Society for students, I feel like I belong. So no matter how difficult it gets, I now know I have family here in this community.”
