Most young Gambians imagine Europe to be a beautiful place full of chances. They are hoping to find work, to get an education and to improve their skills. But all these expectations are crushed once they arrive in the refugee camps. There, they lose hope while waiting for their papers and end up at Görlitzer Park. I wanted to come to Europe to study but since my arrival more than four years ago, I was neither able to work nor to study. Only recently was I able to start my integration course.
