    “The Chocolate Wrapper” was inspired by the true event of Evren Anil’s fatal incident. He was a healthy, intelligent, promising 23 year old man. On a summer’s day in August 2007, he was travelling in a car with his 26 year old sister Elif, through South London. Whilst waiting at a set of traffic lights, a half-eaten chocolate bar was suddenly thrown through their open car window.

  • Evren Abi was funny, caring and always liked to squeeze my cheeks. The reason why his death was so unbearable to accept was because he was an angel. He was someone who was always respectful to his elders and a friend to the younger generation. He had a smile that warmed you inside. I have coincidentally followed in his footsteps. I studied at the college and the same university he attended, thus have had a chance to feel his presence and understand that part of his life. I really miss my cousin, I wish he never left. But they say god takes the ones he loves most early and I am very sure that was the reason why he left this earth. Peace be upon his soul.

  • Evren Anil – A very special person who was a true example with the way he lived his amazing but short life. His educational and professional life personally inspired me to achieve some of the important goals I have today and most importantly, his devotion to teaching and assisting children will always be cherished within the local community which he was part of.

  • He was typically the centre of attention in the group, with his animated stories, humorous and witty remarks. Never failing to keep everyone in his company happy. Its very sad that Evren passed away in this way.

  • Evren was a star mentor, a successful student himself, he was an inspiration for many of his students. What he has done for others and the world remains and is immortal.
