WHAT a splendid story about Marzieh Momeni (‘I love it here’ – an Iranian refugee’s life in Scotland, June 20). And what bravery!

Her career is likely to be assured. From phlebotomist to training to be a midwife, given her personality, should not be insuperable.

Let the Scottish Government pursue every policy to have all of the people like the Momeni family sought out and welcomed to Scotland.
