I know that with time I will be able to make a career again

Even though I'm an economist and I'm good in my profession, I’m ready to do any kind of job her.

I didn’t want to leave Syria, I had a good life there. My boss really liked me and I had a good position in the company. I could support my entire family. They decided to stay behind and now can’t even get out of the house because it’s too dangerous to go outside. One of the hardest things for me is that I’m no longer capable of taking care of them. My family is relying on my support. I was lucky enough to get to Germany but it will take more than a year before I can start working. Even though I’m an economist and I’m good in my profession, I’m ready to do any kind of job here as long as I can start sending money back home. I don’t mind washing dishes in a restaurant or even cleaning the streets. I know that with time I will be able to make a career again. Life has a funny way of throwing everything upside down. Couple of years before I fled Syria, I had everything I needed to live well and was preparing to find a good wife, settle down and have kids. Now I live as a refugee, not really knowing what tomorrow will bring.
