Alex Whitteker

Alex hails from New Zealand and has made new friends through The Welcoming’s befriending programme. You may see him out with Abubker from Sudan or Ayad from Syria. We’ve learnt about each other’s countries, shared music, tried each other’s food and generally had a blast hanging out,” he says. “As one of around 10,000 foreign nationals calling Edinburgh home each year, I am excited to be considered a NewScot.”
