#WeAreMigrants Feature: Mercy


London, United Kingdom

Housekeeper age group

1. How many years since you migrated, or since you became a migrant worker? What do you remember most about that first migration experience?

I've started as a migrant Domestic Workers from 2012. The first time my experience was that it is difficult to find a proper house. If some of my flatmates have a trouble with their friends, I needed to leave to find another house just to avoid people around me.

2. The migrant workers in our TAYO community are people of strength and generosity. Tell us about a time this 2022 where you saw strength or generosity in yourself or in a fellow migrant worker.

I saw my strength or generosity when i met the Voice of Domestic Workers.

3. Our TAYO community believes in the multiple talents and skills of our members. Tell us about talent or skill that you have, that you’d like others to know more about.

I loved singing and dancing even if I'm not a good at it 😊. Cooking is also my habit but now i don't have time to cook and bake.

4. For the family members and loved ones that are still in your home country, what is your message for them as we end 2022 and start the new year 2023?

Just stay what you are and always believe in yourself.

This feature is one of the entries to our #WeAreMigrants Contest - in celebration of International Migrants Day 2022.

Are you a domestic worker too?
