    I am from Croydon, London, England. I don't remember much about it as I left when I was 7.

    I lived for 7 years in the Carribean and have attended at least 8 educational institutions.

    I'm working atm and am doing A2s in Further Mathematics, Chemistry and Biology. I hold offers for biochemistry and related subjects and hope to become doctor after successful completion of the accelerated 4 year GEM programme following my undergraduate degree.
    Do you remember much of the Carribean? What was it like being in 8 different places?

    I do . The people were more open, friendlier and less passive aggressive and sarcastic. The weather was warmer so I didn't have to wear tops. The food was more spicy and flavourful. Very religious and anti LGBT depending on area. Less developed.

    Certainly interesting. I don't think I've been in a house for more than 2-3 years. I've had to learn to make friends quickly which has led to some attachment issues. I also tend to rush friendships I guess more so than people who are used to being in one place with friends for life. But living in different areas and meeting new people has made me appreciate other perspectives and has broadened my own!
