My father wanted to force me to marry

I’m from Guinea. It’s a big and very warm country. I lived there with my sister and my parents. I went to school there and worked as a saleswoman after school.

I left my homeland because my father wanted to force me to marry a man. He threatened to kill me if I didn’t marry him. He was a rich man and my family is very poor.

That’s why I fled to Germany.

Here I go to school, I attend the A1 language course and my wish is to find a job here. Preferably as a nurse.
