Episode One: Ramona’s story

Ramona Constantin arrived in the UK from Romania in 2009. Since then, she has experienced life as a Big Issue North seller, seen the prejudice and hate that comes with being an immigrant, raised a family, and delivered projects within Roma communities in Manchester to aid integration. We caught up with Ramona in the summer of 2017 to talk about her journey, her progress, and the bombshell that came with the Brexit vote.
