My father was taken away

My name is A., I am 21 years old and I come from Eritrea. I worked as a goldsmith in Eritrea for a long time. I lived with my family. I come from the village of Ghinda.

I left Eritrea in July 2013. My father was taken away for political reasons. Life became very difficult for me and my family because my father worked for the family. I got big problems, had to leave school and got into prison.

At the moment I am attending the German course. Here in Germany I live alone. I would like to pass the German course and work as a goldsmith again.
