Michelle Daly: Lacking Friendships
Here Michelle talks about the lack of opportunity to make friends locally.
TranscriptI didn't really feel that I actually had any real friends that weren't part of my brothers and sisters' friends because they'd gone to school with individuals, because I was at a special school, segregated school meant that I didn't have meaningful friendships. Your school is not always within your neighbourhood and that was my problem, it wasn't actually in the neighbourhood so there's moments in your life I think in terms you think about, life can be lonely.
