Name: Elaf Hussien
Age: 15
Year of the Fix: 2018
Location: Edinburgh
Campaign: To promote cultural inclusion groups in schools

I came to live in Edinburgh from Sudan three years ago.

 

The biggest challenge was language – I couldn’t communicate with people and they couldn’t understand me.

 

There was also racism because I wear a headscarf.

 

My school’s cultural inclusion group made a huge difference. We share our problems and feelings and it makes you feel that you’re not alone.

 

I’d like the cultural inclusion groups to be introduced to as many schools as possible.

The following people helped me with this fix:

 

Noor Hussain

Ayat Riaz

Toqa Abdel Motalab

Boryana Ivanova

Adrianna Czapla

Thank you to Action For Children for supporting this project.
