A lot of new friends

My name is Abdullah and I am from Syria. I am 18 years old and I studied in Syria for 10 years. Then I had to left school because of the war. I moved to Damascus to go to Turkey. I stayed there for two weeks. Then I moved here in Greece.

From Syria to Turkey I moved illegally, the same from Turkey to Greece. Here in Greece, I am with my family, my parents and my three sisters. My dad is a fisherman, ‘psaras’ in Greek. In the future, I would like to study and become an architect.
The life here is fine, not too good but it’s fine. Better from the war. We have fun because we met a lot of new friends. They are very nice and from many countries (people from NGOs). Every day I go to school and I have a lot of friends, especially girls.
