I am 38 years old and come from Beirut in Lebanon. In my home country I studied High Arabic, later I worked as an Arabic teacher. I lived with my family.
Beirut is a very beautiful and above all very open city. Life in Lebanon is very expensive, but the wages are low. It is not easy to survive there.
I left my homeland in 2015. I had no other choice, there was no security in Lebanon.
The political and economic situation made life there impossible.
Today, in Germany, I am attending a language course. I dream of working as an Arabic teacher in Germany.
