  • How I Escaped
  • Your grandson has to become a child soldier!
  • My name is Mohammad.  I was 13 years old the day I left Somalia, leaving my grandmother behind.  After almost being taken from my family by our military, and placed as a child soldier,  I escaped briskly at night with the help of smugglers.
  • I kept hope while travelling and though I didn't know where I was going I continued.The days that I traveled I thought of my grandmother who had raised me after my parents had passed and was more than thankful.
  • My smugglers helped me throughout the journey to get out of Somalia as quick as possible.  Soon I realized that my Somalian passport was taken.  I was terrified with what would happen but despite this I ventured on.  
  • When coming to Thailand I realized how stable the country was, though I still was without my Somalian passport which worried me severely after entering as an undocumented child in a refugee camp.
  • I soon got into soccer which was a blessing, having the refugee camps be very boring.  I played with a local team and soon went to tournaments.  I enjoyed them immensely, always looking forward to them.
  • Suddenly, one day, at one of the tournaments, I was taken by the immigrant police.  They took me into a detention center in Thailand where I soon took the case to court claiming that one of my smugglers took my passport. Thankfully, my case won, making me very happy.  Now I continue playing soccer as well as living in Thailand.
