I met Alexandra on a bench just outside Liverpool Street Station in London. She told me that she had just arrived in the UK, having flown in from her home in Portugal earlier today. She had come to London to visit family and friends who she had not seen for some time.
She seemed very interested in hearing all about my 100 Strangers Project and her face lit up when I asked if she would take part. Hopefully this energy and enthusiasm has come across in her portrait.
