The singer shared a video to her Instagram account of herself as a little girl with her family looking really happy and along with the video she talked about being a refugee after her family left Pristina to start a new life in the English capital.
In the video Rita is playing in the park, dancing around looking extremely happy.
Rita talked about she ‘had to witness certain things just so I could fit in’, but credited outdoor spaces for ‘being a place to feel free in’.
‘Hi guys. I guess the reason for this post is to show you guys when I was little in the summer of July 1994’,
‘I guess I just felt free watching this and wanted to share.
‘Why did I love the camera so much! Even as a kid! I hope this makes you smile, just watching a life of a young carefree kid. This is what everyone deserves, a chance to have a good life and an opportunity to be happy.
