Moving to a new country

"My name is Amir and I'm 10. My mum and dad and me came to England after escaping from Iran. It was really bad there because it was dangerous and lots of our friends had been hurt or killed.

"The kids at school were teasing me because I'm not from England, I'm from Iran, but I spoke to my teacher and she taught me to stand up for myself. I've learnt to be proud of who I am, I have lots of friends and now I'm happy."

Moving to a new country can be very scary. If you are finding it hard to fit in or cope with life in a new country, tell someone about how you feel. Sometimes moving to a new place can be a great experience, you could make lots of new friends and get to do new things that you might not be able to do at home.
