- Determined Tesfay arrived in the UK after he moved from the Calais Jungle, a former refugee encampment in France

With relentless determination, a young asylum seeker identified simply as Tesfay, who fled to England to seek greener pastures has graduated with a first-class degree from the South Bank University.

Tesfay had moved from the Calais Jungle, a refugee and migrant encampment in the vicinity of Calais, France to the UK carrying along hope in search of a better life in the UK.

He arrived in a lorry with only his clothes on his back seeking accommodation in Bolton.

Tesfey’s exceptional story has been accentuated by The Worldwide Tribe, a non-profit organisation that witnessed the resilient young man’s journey from the refugee camp to earning a degree with first-class honours.

The Worldwide Tribe partly wrote on Facebook: ''This is Tesfay. We met in the Calais Jungle in 2015. In the photo on the left he had just arrived to the camp and didn’t even have a jacket, let alone a tent. We gave him one and helped him set it up, then visited him regularly in the months that followed.

I will never forget the day he made it to England. He came inside a lorry with only the clothes on his back. We went to visit him in his asylum-seeking accommodation in Bolton. It was a bloody long drive but I was so excited the whole way..."

They spoke of how he managed on a miserly £5 daily stipend and had to even save up from the little had.
