Mohammed is one of the smartest and funniest people I’ve had the pleasure to meet recently. He’s an English teacher, a father of four, and a Syrian refugee. Maintaining his cheer, curiosity and openness is an admirable feat, after travelling four months to Germany with wife and kids, and waiting ten months here to start German lessons and truly begin his new life.

He’s working on understanding German culture, and trying to pass on some of it to his fellow refugees, to help them through their culture shock, adjust their ideas of what’s right and wrong, and keep them from making embarrassing, if not dangerous, mistakes.
