"I’m Annie Hunter and I’m a 13 year old. My father has died and my Mum really isn’t well. The home where I grew up wasn’t really a place anyone would want to live.
On May 7th I emigrated to Canada to start a new life in the countryside to get away from my life in Liverpool. Once I got to Canada I didn’t contact England again and just started my new life."
