Ονομάζομαι Salman Numan Salih Selim. Κατάγομαι από τη Συρία. Η μητέρα μου και ο πατέρας μου είναι Κούρδοι. Ζούσα στον καταυλισμό της Τζαραμάνα στη Συρία. Εκεί ήμασταν χαρούμενοι, αλλά μετά τις εξελίξεις στη Συρία φύγαμε και εγκατασταθήκαμε στην περιοχή της μητέρας μου που ονομάζεται Ίντιορ και βρίσκεται πολύ κοντά στην Τουρκία. Έπειτα ο πατέρας μου ήθελε να πάμε στο Ιράκ και να εγκατασταθούμε εκεί, στην πόλη Ντοχούκ. Εγκατέλειψα τις σπουδές μου και εργαζόμουν εκεί. Η ζωή μου ήταν καλή, όμως μετά την εισβολή του ISIS αναγκαστήκαμε να φύγουμε από την πόλη και έπειτα ήρθαμε στην Τουρκία. Έμεινα στην Τουρκία για δύο μήνες πριν έρθω στην Ελλάδα.Dublin Core: Language: el Subject: Greece, Syria, Iraq, refugee, A Million Stories
