If I were asked
why I am with you,
I would answer that I saw my
future
in you and
always wanted to have
such a kind man near me!

Q  Why did you want or have to leave your homeland?
A  That's what my family decided for me. There was a war, you're not safe.

Q  How did you get to Germany and how long were you traveling?
A  I was still young, I can't remember exactly. We came by plane.

Q  What do you particularly like in Germany?
A  Education, that different people work together and understand each other - it's more colorful than at home.

Q  What do you like better in your home country?
A  The fast breaking [Eid al-Fitr] is celebrated big at home

Q  What do you wish for your future?
A  Success, happiness, a good life.
