Sheyla moved to Milton Keynes in 2015 after living in Spain all her life. When she arrived she spoke no English and had never been on a plane before. At first she lived with a Spanish family but after a few months she secured a job and a place of her own. She is excited about the future and believes that Milton Keynes will offer her a life she could never have had in Spain.
This HLF-funded project celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of Milton Keynes. We interviewed more than 50 people who have made the town their home, who shared their memories, experiences, and hopes for the future. For more information about the project, visit mkpeoplesstories.co.uk
