Sahar Shahin


Life in Hull is not good for me and I have a lot of problems with people who live here my neighbours aren’t nice, they throw all their rubbish into my backyard. I have to pay a lot of money for my studies and getting medical care from my GP is very difficult.

I took some medicine to help with my allergies but because there was no translator I didn’t find out that you shouldn’t take them if you are pregnant. Apart from the language difficulties the GP makes me pay for my prescriptions even though I am exempt for payment and have an exemption certificate.

I had to escape from Iran as my life was in danger.
