A 24-year-old from east London who won a global competition to go into space took time out of his space training schedule to visit a refugee camp in Greece.
Travelling with his childhood friend Ahmed Khankhara, mental health campaigner Hussain is aiming to raise awareness of the grueling conditions those living in the camp face both mentally and physically.
Hussain shot to notoriety when, in 2015, when he won the Kruger Cowne Rising Star Programme following his breath-taking spoken-word performance last November at the One Young World Summit in Bangkok.
From over a thousand entrants from over 90 countries, the champion of the competition won a flight into space. Hussain’s enthusiastic and dynamic stage presence at the live final saw him battle the issues surrounding mental health, leading to a standing ovation from the 2,000 strong audience.
