This October Mouheydin launches his new business, Falafel Fella, bringing the flavours and tradition of his native Syria to his adopted home in the North-East of England.
Watch this space for more from Mouheydin along this journey, as he sets out to make his own way and give something back to the people and community that have welcomed him here in the UK.
I would encourage others who might be in my position to follow their own dreams, not to let anything break them and to keep looking forward.
I cannot say it has been easy but life is not easy for anyone and with love and support to follow my dreams, life has become easier.
I just keep smiling because nothing changes for you if you don’t smile but if you do, then you feel better and make others feel better too.
