So I have some pretty devastating personal news. After living in the UK since the age of 10 and spending a large portion of the past couple of years campaigning on EU settled status. I just found out that the @ukhomeoffice has rejected my own Settled Status application...
Meaning that I could potentially be deported back to The Netherlands. One of the reasons cited for the rejection of my settled status was that there are gaps where they can’t prove my residence. One of these gaps apparently is when I was studying at The University of Cambridge
If I’m not granted Settled Status - I will be in the UK illegally and I can’t work nor can I access any public funds or services including the NHS. When I was raising awareness for settled status these past couple of years I never thought I would have to advocate for myself
Even as I tweet this I’m scared for my future employment and how it will affect my job prospects. Hopefully this was just an administrative error on @ukhomeoffice ‘s part and I can remain in the country that I call my home with my family and loved ones
