Ola Almafalaani is a 23 year old woman from Daraa, Syria.
I’m living here with my uncle. It took me one year to go from Syria to Denmark. An agent helped me escape from Syria to Turkey where I had to walk 18 hours in the mountains. After that I took a bus to Istanbul where I stayed for 6 months. I tried to cross to Greece but kept on being caught by the Greek police. After 6 months I entered Greece where I tried to take a plane but the police caught me many times. I then walked to Macedonia and afterwards on foot across Serbia, Bosnia, Croatia, Slovenia, Italy, Switzerland, France, Germany and then finally Denmark.
I’ve been here a year now. I’m happy living here with my uncle’s family. I would like to continue my studies here and study to become a lawyer.Dublin Core: Language: en Subject: a million stories, refugee, denmark, syria, roskilde, lawyer, education,
