“We are people who work hard”

Ονομάζομαι Rifaat και είμαι από τη Δαμασκό της Συρίας. Ήμουν φοιτητής στο Τμήμα Γαλλικής Γλώσσας και Φιλολογίας της Σχολής Ανθρωπιστικών Σπουδών και Καλών Τεχνών.

Ονομάζομαι Abd Alrzak. Είμαι από τη Συρία. Είμαι 32 ετών. Γεννήθηκα στο Ντεΐρ εζ-Ζορ στην ανατολική Συρία.
