I come from Syria and I am 45 years old. In Syria I lived in Aleppo and worked there as a secretary. The war started in Syria in 2011, in Aleppo it started in 2012. My family emigrated to Turkey, Iraq and Lebanon. I left my job in 2013. I always lived with friends because my family was gone. My house was destroyed, so I stayed with friends. During the war I saw death. I remember the explosions, I saw death before my eyes. My friends died before my eyes.
I have been attending a German course for 1,5 years. I would like to work in childcare. My hobbies are cooking, reading and handicrafts. I would like to pass my B1 course and find a good job afterwards.
