“They say your childhood dreams determine your future, I agree with that very much. It became clear to me after the dinosaur stories attracted me in my teenage years.
What are dinosaurs? Where did they go? How big was the Brachiosaurus? I collected money when I was 16 to buy books about dinosaurs, the planets, life, and space. I still have them. I am a geologist, I study the rocks to find out what they are made of. Would you believe it, the rocks talk, yes! This is what I found out after 15 years of studying and working in geology.”

“I am now working on the details of a research about the dinosaurs extinction when life ended 66 years ago after a meteor hit the earth. And how life started again. After much effort, I was able to find part of a meteor for the first time around Duhok. This success did not end there. There was another research afterwards about a new geological era around Duhok and Zakho, which many researchers failed to find. It seems like geology feels the same way about me as I do about it.”
