Together all the way from Colombia to London

Acting as a mentor o­n the Time Together scheme has enabled Becky to really see- through the eyes of Ana- how it is to learn and adapt to living in a different country.

Both were thrilled when Ana finally gained British citizenship.  Becky explains, "I attended her citizenship ceremony last Friday, which was a very moving experience.  She was incredibly happy and excited and said she really appreciated having me there.  I was a referee for her citizenship application and am now acting as a referee for her passport application.  It is a really positive step forward for Ana."

However, gaining citizenship is not the o­nly exciting thing occurring in Ana’s life in the UK.  Her English has improved enormously and she is applying to study English and Business as a full time student this September.
