Rakiya Suleiman

Equality and Diversity Advisor, Waverley Gate
Haven: Terrace Garden

This is a wide place, this is wide, is open, has a lot of light. And for me, light means strength. So I walk towards the light. The light is not just what I’m seeing. The light could be a human being smiling at me. The light could be a kind word. The light could also be the ability for me to also share with people that are feeling the same way, so making it better. Everybody loves light.”
