Sohail, 15, sought refuge in small town Sweden
Sohail Pirooz is 15 and lives in the northern town of Krokom. He is good at maths and football. He thinks his parents would be impressed if they knew that he can cook - and that he has learnt a new language: Swedish.
Sohail has been in Sweden almost 18 months and does not know yet if he is allowed to stay or not. But he does not worry so much about it.
I don't think a lot about it, because if I do, I can't learn Swedish and I can't continue with school. School is the most important for me now," he says.
His main focus is on getting the grades he needs in order to finish year 9 and enter upper secondary school at the first try, next autumn.
Sohail grew up in Afghanistan's third biggest city, Herat, and the difference to life in the small town of Krokom in northern Sweden could not be bigger. But Sohail does not worry about this, he has found friends here.
The trip here was very difficult, but I learnt a lot. The most important thing I learnt was how you can help other people, because many people helped me along the way," he says.
