The Road From Damascus

After seeing Ahmad talking passionately about his life ambitions on Dutch national television, I was fascinated and impressed by his energy and enthusiasm. I sent him a message to ask whether he wanted to share his story about trying to rebuild a life in The Netherlands. He agreed and told me it made him happy that someone was interested in what he had to say. His experiences as a young refugee trying to pursue his dream of becoming a plastic surgeon, turned out to be a story about ambition, perseverance and the city of Breda as a turning point in his life.
