My name is Ahmad Salem and I come from Syria. I am 27 years old and currently live in Trier. In Syria I studied Informatics. When I was a child I dreamt of coming to Germany one day and here I am right now.

How long was your journey?

My journey took 15 days until I arrived to Germany…

What has been the best/worst part of your experiences in Germany?

I had nothing bad happened to me so far…

The best experience is living with German students  😉

What are the main difficulties you are facing right now?

The hardest thing is the language and how far I am from my family in Syria, but I have a language school to attend and hopefully I will start speaking German pretty soon.

What is it that you like in your new life?

A lot of things: the people, the lifestyle,  the German system and the beautiful nature!

Do you feel yourself part of the German society? 

Not yet, but I’d say I am about 60% there 😉 and I like it so much!

Anything you wish to add?

I wold like to say thank you from the bottom of my heart to Germany for giving us the chance to have a new life and I wish the best for the German people 😊😊
