I’m less shy and more confident. Amara Being here helped me meet new people. We play games and have fun and I get to practice speaking English while socialising with others. Kayan This gets me doing lots of different things, helps me explore my interests. For example, we tried yoga for the first time today and I’m looking to get involved in photography. We also go on trips in and out of Bristol, which is fun. This helps me meet new people, we have parties and everyone is really friendly; there’s a real sense of community, it’s a nice place to come to. I also get support with CV stuff and practicing my English. Sammy What next? Want to know more about this club night or have a chat before you join us?
