Mohamed Mahyoub emigrated from Yemen to the UK, but was unable to speak much English when he arrived.
Now, less than 10 years later, he is a successful young man helping young people in his community, whilst studying for a PhD.
Mohamed struggled in school but still achieved eight GCSEs with A – C grades and enrolled at Priestly College to re-sit English GCSE.
He took part in activities such as the Six Book Challenge to improve his English and also achieved A-Levels in Arabic and a BTEC in IT.
Mohamed received unconditional offers from five universities, eventually graduating from Liverpool John Moores University with a first in a BSc (Hons) degree in Computer Science.
His learning has inspired him to launch NativeStart, a youth organisation supporting Yemeni and Arabic communities in Warrington.
He also co-founded web development company, UKByte Ltd, providing employment and work experience for young people.
