Mai comes from Thailand and has been boarding for nearly 7 years. It exceeded her expectations as she thought she would be in large cubicles, shared with lots of other people. At first it was strange to live with friends and do everything together, but now she loves it. She has learnt how to live independently but knows she can talk to anyone if she needs emotional support or just a friendly chat. She’s planning to go to university to study medicine and to travel. She also hopes to volunteer to teach English in schools in rural Thailand.
“I enjoy the buzzing, lively atmosphere in the Boarding House and the staff encourage me to try new things.”
