Podcast: Moein Hosseini – ‘From Tehran to Stockholm – My refugee story’

In this podcast, Moein Hosseini talks frankly about his flight from Tehran to Stockholm as a teenager and the three-year journey from school to his new life as a documentary film-maker and refugee rights activist.

“I’ve learned that I am very tough,” 21 year old Hosseini says, reviewing his three years in Sweden. “I’ve learned that I am sensitive. When I came here, I was a child.

“But when you have a goal, things get easier.”

Hosseini was a keynote speaker at an 18 October European Youth Centre conference, organised by the Joint Council on Youth, which brings together government representatives and youth NGOs. The event focussed on the integration of young migrants and refugees in Europe.
