I am seeking appreciation

When and why did you leave your country?


Where did you start your journey?


Which countries did you travel through?

Turkie, Greece, Macedonia, Serbia, Croatia, Hungary, Austria, Germany.

Why did you choose this country rather than another country?

Germany is considered the best country in the world that respects human rights, fights against racism and they give good care about human beings.

What was your principal difficulty once you arrived in the host country?

When I arrived in Germany, I was passing by bad psychological situations, which affected my concentration for learning the language and then the application for residency and waiting for family reunification procedures. It took a long time to find a flat and school for my children. All the life necessities were hard to fulfil in a new country with everything new and not easy to finalise.

Do you have a job?

I have a job and I am volunteering in an NGO for the last three years.

Do you have local friends


What do you like most in the host country?

How the people are dealing and treating us. How they are caring about our situations and provide help. People are so friendly and they help us to integrate in the community and find a job. People respect each other and there is no discrimmination.

What do you do in your spare time?

I spend my spare time with my family and I have a hobby to loom some paints with the use of threads. I did an exhibition for my portiarts once. I meet my friends from time to time and go out with them.

What do you think will help newcomers?

I volunteer with a german NGO to welcome the people coming from Ukraine through making a grill party. The party had a good motive for the people, as they felt welcomed by the people in Germany. By making parties like this can make a good impression psychologically on the people. as they find people to help. We provided support and guidance for the newcomers, which made the integration easier through seminars, workshops, webinars, and personal guidance.

What do you miss about your country?

My family there.
