Recently Salvador took part in a day long workshop with Headliners, to explore and challenge the misrepresentations of young refugees in the media. He wanted to show that young refugees are just your average young people.

The banner picture is his own self portrait and his work is part of a newly started collection of #YoungRefugeeVoices.

'I like to study and like everyone I love football. I do not like to meddle in people's affairs and I get irritated fast, so I'm silent.

I like to draw but i never had drawing classes... when I have nothing to do at home I begin to draw to pass the time.

In the future I will study...I will become an architect.'

Salvador, 17 (Name has been changed)
