Arriving in Germany as a refugee from Bangladesh, 16-year-old Lalmiah Mohammed found himself alone in a foreign country. Today, five years later, Mohammed is on his way to becoming a chef, having completed a three-year apprenticeship as an assistant chef at the Käthe-Kollwitz-School in #Aachen. Given his exemplary grades despite language difficulties, his supervisors predict he will graduate early. “Many refugees do not pass their exams because they have difficulties understanding the exam questions,” says René de Costa, Chef Course Coordinator. Not even all the German-native students easily understand the questions, he says. In November, Mohammed’s skills will be awarded at a regional excellence recognition ceremony in Hagen.
