My name is Tarek and I am from Homs, Syria. I have a diploma in electrical engineering and I was an employee at a petrol company for 13 years in Syria.  I had to flee Syria in 2013 for my safety, leaving everything behind. Now I live in Jordan, where it is very difficult to find work and support myself. I currently work informally as a film director’s assistant. I am very interested in going abroad to work in my field. I don’t want to take money from humanitarian organizations. I want to work. I want to continue to develop myself and my skills.

Life deserves to be lived.
