Umeswaran Arunagirinathan | From Needing Help to Helping Others | TEDxRuhrUniversityBochum

Hear the story of a young Sri Lankan Tamil refugee who made it against the odds.

What happens when a child is forced to change its perspective on life and beautiful memories turn into dramatic fear? Umeswaran tells us the story of a life between cultures that began when he escaped the civil war in Sri Lanka as a teenage boy by being smuggled to his uncle in Germany. His promise: to return as a doctor.
