17-year-old Timor Sultani has had a good start in Sweden, thanks to a special friendship with one of the first people he met in the country.

Only a few days after 17-year-old Timor Sultani came to Sweden, he was sent to Gothenburg on the west coast, where he was going to stay in a home for young asylum seekers who had come here without their parents. Waiting for him at the train station were two people from the home. One of them was Niklas.

"Niklas has given me love and met me with open arms, which is something I have needed. If he had not been here, I would have felt very alone. And maybe I would have felt like a stranger for many years here," he says.

This story is part of a series about the everyday lives of unaccompanied minors in Sweden, young people who have come here without their parents.
