    It's not nearly as bad for my brother. If I ever attempted 1/10 of the stuff he pulls off, I'd be put on a cargo ship back to Saudi Arabia lol. It's definitely worse for a girl.
    Yeah it was like that for my sister as well. The amount of times i heard my parents talking about sending my sister back to Ghana for the smallest of things was ridiculous.

    I'm nearly 21 years old, and I still get phone calls at half-ten to come home because it's late lol.

    Saudi would be a piece of piss for me.
    Is it the homophobia, the antisemitism or the fact that women don't have have to give you their permission before you have sex with them?

    Mmm sometimes it makes my life harder than it needs to be but often because they expect I'll never do anything bad, it makes getting away with it easier. I'll go to London to visit my friends who live there and I'll call them at 11 to say I'm sleeping and they believe it lol. They never suspect I'd go out and whatnot.

    Honesty is the best policy

    I'd include some Middle Eastern cultures as well

    Basically a western culture is what I'd want to grow up in. Although I was born in a western country, I was raised in an Asian culture

    I'm glad my mum chose to move us to the UK. This country has provided me with opportunities I may not have had back in Nigeria. Being Nigerian can be annoying at times cause nigerian people are too much lol and parts of the culture I don't particularly like. Overall I'd say I'm satisfied

    Not just the culture but the weather it gets tiring how it is always cold and wet. Also in my area everyone is rude and nasty/ chavs everywhere.
