Young Woman Moves To Island Of Senior Citizens And Takes On 9 Jobs





We all, sometimes, feel tired and stressed and are in need of a much-deserved break. This one woman took it to the next level and moved to an island far from the city. We may have seen it in the movies wherein the hero/heroine dropped everything and start a new life elsewhere.

26-year-old Sarah Moore became the youngest citizen on an island inhabited by senior citizens. She moved from the bustling city life in Edinburgh, Scotland to an island with a total population of 45 citizens and an average age of 65.

Moving to an island and being the strongest, she took some of the jobs on the island since no one would take them. She’s a carer, air traffic controller, baggage handler, postal worker, digger driver on the farms, tour guide, firefighter, baggage handler, and clerk for the island council.

Sarah was enthralled by the beauty of the island.

She doesn’t miss the city life in Edinburgh.

Before moving to the island, Sarah worked in retail. She said that despite being in a populated place, she still felt alone and lonely. Sarah said,

“It’s not an easy life here, and it’s not a place anyone comes to get rich, but I love it. The city is too crowded and there’s no greenery or scenery. For me, there was just a dead-end job. Retail work is not for me.

“It was lonely in Edinburgh, even though there are so many people. I lived in the same house for 23 years and I only knew the people to the left and right of me, and here I know everyone.”

The only thing that she finds difficult in the island is dating since she lives with senior citizens. However, the seniors tried to help her out as they have been handing out her CV to younger guys. The seniors relied on Sarah too much and wanted her to stay and settle on the island.

Sarah said that she doesn’t really miss Edinburgh and sometimes visit her parents. Villagers are hoping to attract the younger people to live on the island.
