What Makes London Home?

London is known for its ethnic diversity. According to The Daily Mail, some experts predict that foreign-born population in the city will outnumber that of native Britons by 2031. One of the reasons why I decided to come to London was because it’s diversity, and the energy of the city really resonated with me. It was something unique that I knew I wanted to be a part of. Me myself being a temporary immigrant in this city, I wondered what made people in my age group come here, and what London truly is for them.
