This week’s Humans of Weston instalment comes from aspiring social worker Njweng Nadege Bosang.

Njweng, aged 24, moved to Weston from Cameroon in 2008 with her parents.

She said although she enjoyed life in the UK, she missed certain aspects of African life due to spending her childhood in Cameroon.

Njweng said: “My whole childhood was in Africa. I do miss it – I miss a lot of things.

“I don’t like the weather here but I like the weather in Africa.

“It does have advantages here, but it’s all about balance between the advantages here and the advantages there.”

Njweng said she wanted to be a social worker to help vulnerable children in need of support.

She said: “I am a support worker, but am also at college doing my maths and English. I want to be a social worker as I feel like there are a lot of children who need help, and some of them are not getting it.”
