Who am I?
Hello I'm Livia and I was born in Brazil, now living in the United Kingdom since 2016.
I see integration as a positive way of thinking because if you don't integrate you get lost!
Fulfill your passions
My journalism qualifications were not recognised in the UK, which put up barriers for me and my career. However, this inspired me to seek alternative routes to pursue my passion in journalism. I decided to create an Instagram blog account about life in Sheffield, as I found my feet and explored my new home. Now I have around 2500 followers and regulary post tips about where to go and what to see. I was able to use social media to build my local network and continue living my passion.
My top tip! Find networks for support. Volunteer. Give back to the community. You meet a lot of people in this way.
