I was born in Eritrea and lived in the north east African country until I was 14.
My family was very loving but I made the difficult decision to leave in secret, in a bid for a better life.
The country has a very poor human rights record and there is compulsory military service.
A number of my friends were made to join the Army but were then never heard of again.
When I arrived in the UK in May 2015, I was taken in by a foster family and I have been studying hard ever since to make a better life for myself.
I find it frustrating when I hear young people in this country complaining that they are stressed.
So I made a film with Fixers to help them realise just how lucky they are.
Georgia Brown helped me with my project.
My project was supported by East Kent College.

Me and my friends want young people to know that calories aren't the enemy!
