Meet Dured, the young Syrian winner of the Young Scot Community Award 2017;| Scottish Refugee Council blog

Dured speaks about his experience of life in Scotland: ‘’When I moved to Scotland I was afraid how would people interact with me knowing I come from a different background, and with little English. But it did not take a long time to find out how friendly and welcoming Scottish people are. I did not feel discriminated and I have made new friends quickly. I feel I am home and Scottish people are my people. I proudly think about me and the rest of my family members as the New Scots. My future plans are to continue my study and go to university. In addition to a side project, I am working to secure a fund for a restaurant which will serve Arabic food as an initiative to introduce our traditional food to Aberdeenshire as well as creating job opportunities.’’
