I have consciously identified as European since I lived in America as a 16 years old exchange student. During this exchange, I formed a life long bond & respect with my European friends and I am proud to be European. As an adult, I also have many friends with European heritage.
Being a part of Europe gives us opportunities to be a force for good. I am deeply unhappy my children will lose this opportunity if Brexit is fully realised. I would like to see a second referendum - now the electorate realises the full impact of what Brexit really means.
