I have been so grateful to my friends and supporters, who have been sending me letters of support for my case and saying why they think I should be allowed to stay in UK. I have also been writing my statement with my solicitor. But I wanted to tell UKBA in my own words too…
Dear Sir or Madam:
I am writing to explain my life which I have built in the UK in these 4.5 years. I am from Afghanistan and I came to UK at the age of 16.
The reason I came to UK was because my life was in danger and I’m afraid to go back because there are people who are looking for me to kill me or force me to fight. If I return they will find me one day and I don’t want to join them because now I know which way is right and wrong.
My day has been terrible and I don’t even know how to talk about it. It was my first day of when I got my ICT course in college after my social worker agreed to pay for my fees and I renewed my ID card. I thought my life was just starting to be ok.
