Dana Alfar 25 is years old. She is a Palestinian refugee from Damascus, Syria.
My life before the war was acceptable. I was studying at high school, and I had a certification as a make-up artist from an institute in Damascus. I have also studied one year of accounting in 2015.
In 2015, I had to escape from Syria because of the war. I escaped to Turkey, then to Greece, Macedonia, Serbia, Austria, Germany and finally Denmark. I arrived in DK on the 16th of November 2015.
I was sent to Sandholm refugee camp, and was then moved to another camp called Auderød. After that they moved me to yet another camp in Næstved.
I was granted permission to stay in Denmark on the 28th of January 2016. Now I live in the municipality of Aarhus with my husband. I consider it a fantastic and good life. I am studying the Danish language, and I hope to work in the same field in Denmark, as a make-up artist, as I did in Damascus.
I would love to send a message to the politicians, to look upon refugees in a more open and positive way.
