In light of Brexit, our changing relationship with Europe has so many of us feeling lost. As a Scottish national living between the UK and Portugal from a very early age; Europe is home. I have always been so proud of our united community. Like many, I truly wonder where do we go from here? In a time where our world is shrinking and global communities are being forced to live together through displacement, immigration and fear, it is my disbelief at how our European community can divide further. This work and question is important because it marks a significant moment of our time and cries for clarity over whether our nation can create a compassionate future together.
