"When I arrived in London I was pregnant with my first son. I had to go to the hospital and had many appointments with different specialists. I needed an interpreter for my appointments as I was unable to do by myself. The interpreter was a very kind and nice man, he helped me a lot but at the same time it was a little bit embarrassing sometimes. For my second son I asked not to have an interpreter and tried to do that by myself. Sometimes it was not easy principally because of the vocabulary and different people and accents. But finally I made it and I happy for that."
