Though her Fulbright Scholarship is only for 2 years, she says she intends never to return to Yorkshire.

Coronavirus has other ideas. In March 2020, her school closes down due to the pandemic, and she is forced to return to her hometown. The only person who will welcome her in is her step-brother Bobby aka local Tik-Tok rapper MC Yorkie.
