                      Hanna, who's leaving her life in London to pursue a masters at Oxford University - Londoner #31 Hanna has lived in London all her life, which has shaped her identity. As she travels through the city she loves, Hanna reflects on having to leave London and her family behind, to study a Masters Degree at Oxford University. 1000 LONDONERS ‘Hanna' is the first in a new series of 1000 Londoners films, made by people living and working in the capital. The films released are part of the 1000 Londoners second phase, filmed by community groups within London; providing an honest and raw perspective of our city. The community groups include schools, museums and galleries. The series has been generously supported by the London Transport museum, The Roundhouse, Y-Touring, Tower Hamlets Futureversity, Lambeth Summer University, The Royal Borough of Greenwich Drugs, Alcohol and Mental Health Integrated Commission and Providence Row homeless charity. This film is part of 1000 Londoners, a five-year digital project which aims to create a digital portrait of a city through 1000 of the people who identify themselves with it. The profile contains a 3 minute film that gives an insight into the life of the Londoner, as well as their personal photos of London and some answers to crucial questions about their views on London life. Over the course of the project we aim to reveal as many facets of the capital as possible, seeing city life from 1000 points of view. www.1000londoners.com www.youtube.com/1000londoners www.facebook.com/1000londoners Twitter: @1000_londoners 1000 Londoners is produced by South London based film production company and social enterprise, Chocolate Films. The filmmakers from Chocolate Films will be both producing the films and providing opportunities to young people and community groups to make their own short documentaries, which will contribute to the 1000 films. Visit www.chocolatefilms.com Transcript: This stems from the views or ideas that people have when they see me. So people might think that because I dress a certain way or that I've from a certain culture that I'm expected to do certain things in life. Last year I was doing an internship and I came out laughing and then a lady asked me, did I change the bins? and when I asked her what she meant by that she said, well aren't you the cleaner? Those are some the experiences I have faced and have shaped the way I act and behave. I'm going to do my MSC in Nature and Society, and Environmental Policy at Oxford. And here's a selfie at graduation. My family are really excited about me going to Oxford, I think they are more excited than I am. I'm the first person to graduate from my family and they see that as a really big thing. So when I go home and I've had a hard day I open the door and everybody is like, "Hanna's home!" It's really exciting to get loads of cuddles. Growing up in London I've been fortunate enough, to have grown up around people from different ethnic backgrounds and from different walks of life. However it seems in Oxford it's more homogenised There's like a certain type of person that goes to the university. It's quiet scary, for me. I'm fearful as I feel there may be times when I feel like I don't fit it. And it's going to be the first time I'm going to be away from my family as well. I am quite scared to leave my family, my little sister, the six year old, doesn't allow me to even talk about it and she cries every time she realises that I'm moving out. I've completed one stage of university and I didn't think I could do that and I've done that. And I've proved to myself that I can do it, so I think every time I get those doubts about the future I can look back and think, you've done it you've done really well and you should be proud of yourself. I personally don't think I should change to suit what other people think of me. I have every right to be who I am, just the same way that they are, because I think that's the beauty of living in London. You do get to experience so many things. It would be such a bore really if people assumed they had to change the way they are, just to fit in.
