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)

Headliners strongly believes that young refugee voices are powerful and that they deserve to be heard in their own words. As a result we are launching an appeal aiming to raise £5000 to fund workshops (like the one Dream took part in) with young refugees and asylum seekers and create a collection of young refugee voices that can be placed in the local, national and online press.
