This study will establish what life means for young African adults between the ages of 18-21 living in Ireland. It will try to understand how they adjust to culture with different cultural norms and values as well as how they view and understand the Irish community and their place within it. Using a Qualitative method which involves interviewing 4 females and 4 males this study will focus on what life means to them in the context of living in Ireland. The transcribed data was analysed using thematic analysis. The research gives the participants an opportunity and voice to express their experiences, different challenges they face in their host community and methods utilized to adjust to these challenges.
