An African teen who journeyed to Bronx, New York to escape military torture in the Ivory Coast graduated Tuesday from a school that specializes in giving students second chances.

Ayouba Doumbia, 19, escaped his homeland after his father was killed at a military camp where they were being held captive.

Doumbia’s whole life changed after enrolling in the Manhattan Comprehensive Night and Day High School, the NewYorkDailyNews.com reports:

In an auditorium decorated with flags from dozens of countries, Doumbia became the first in his family to graduate high school. This fall, he’ll study computer engineering at New York City College of Technology.
