Everything changed with the war. We fled to Turkey. One midnight in August 2015, with my two brothers and 45 other people, I crammed into a 7-meter boat setting off from Turkey to Greece. After five terrifying hours, we reached land, and that's where this photo was taken. I wasn't even 17. Let me share my story with you, from Syria to Turkey to Greece to Hungary and on to Germany, where I'm now a student in the 9th grade.
I'm an active member of the Syrian-in-Essen community. My friends know me as a completely open person. I have nothing to hide.
I enjoy studying theatre. I believe anything is possible with courage.
