    But if anyone has ever moved to a different country, I'd love to know what the experience was like, any unexpected differences, would you recommend it etc? And if you live away from family is that hard?

    I moved from Pakistan to England when I was 10. Tbh I expected it to be quite similar to be more like Anerica when it wasn't. Also school here is sooo much easier than Pakistan, here the information is spoon fed to you while in Pakistan the teacher just wrote stuff on the board and you had to study at home to understand it. I moved with my family but from what I've heard , coming here without family is much harder. But if you really want to, then u can get through anything.

    Yup. Initially its isolating, especially if you come to a country where you don't understand the language. It's like being taken to a new place and having your hearing and speech taken away from you. But then one day, without realising it you feel at home there and you don't feel like you stick out like a sore thumb anymore
