This is an account of three refugee youth—Yaser, Abas, and Malek—who fled from their home countries and arrived in Greece after 2015 as unaccompanied asylum-seeking minors. All three youngsters were fluent in English and engaged in public narration at the Intercultural Forum in Nafplion Greece in June 2018. Through vivid narratives, they showcase their tireless efforts to obtain formal education and fulfil their dreams. A narrative approach was deployed to analyze narrators’ educational trajectories with emphasis on thematic and performative aspects. Overall, all three narrators repositioned themselves as deserving newly arrived individuals who advocated for the right to equitable education.
