I’m a Syrian girl. I’m 22 years old.
I came to Denmark soon after my husband’s application for family reunion was accepted. I used to live with my family back in Syria very comfortably just like any young girl. I had my studies that I worked hard for, but couldn’t continue with my law school degree soon after the war erupted. I’m starting anew in Denmark, I had to leave everything behind while watching my dreams crushed.
Denmark is a beautiful country with friendly people. The life in Denmark is beautiful, but at the beginning it was not easy. When you don’t speak the language to communicate with the world and everything is very different around you, after a while you will feel psychological tired and very homesick. Despite the difficulty I believe that if you have a dream, you’ll reach it one day. I am studying Danish right now and I learned it alright, just trying my best to achieve my ambitions despite all the circumstances surrounding me.
It’s an amazing country, offering the best of chances for new starts and fruitful futures. All I can give now is to study and work hard to be able to give back a little. Denmark, you are a hopeful gateway into a brighter future.
I really thank you .
