Giving Refugees A Voice
Many passers-by no doubt take him to be a refugee. But Sinksar Ghebremedhin (25) is a native of Swabia – and a student of Media Informatics at LMU. He seldom corrects the misconception: “In Munich, I’m less afraid of being taken for an Eritrean than I am of being recognized as someone from Swabia,” he jokingly remarks. But he does spend much of his time with people from far-flung parts of the world who have left their homelands behind them. For Sinksar and his colleagues in the Students4 Refugees initiative give classes in German for refugees who hope to study here.
