My self-portrait depicts the story of me coming to the UK as an international student without sufficient language skills. Although lying on a heap of trouble and struggle, I am constantly trying to stay on its top and not to slip down. Despite the uncomfortable times when I have to find the balance between my personal life, school and career I focus on one thing: looking at the sky and seeing the positive.
