Innocent Mutanga fled his home in Zimbabwe to Hong Kong in 2013 as a political refugee.
After at first ending up sleeping on the streets, Innocent found a way to overcome his challenges and enrol in a local university before eventually becoming the first asylum seeker to graduate from a Hong Kong tertiary institution.
