This is part of the Maheen Habib Gill’s story at the Claiming a New Place on Earth exhibition in London.

Focusing not only on their journeys to the UK but also on their efforts to establish new lives, the exhibition tells the stories of ten young asylum seekers. They are portrayed through professions and careers they dream to have such as mechanic, doctor, accountant, but without the legal status and papers in the UK, possibilities for work and studies are limited.
