“I couldn’t finish my education due to our financial situation, we were living in a mud house, but because the place is so small, I am now living with the Muezzin of a mosque. I have worked in physical therapy, media, even theater and cinema, in 1997 I participated in “The Golden Fish” play. However, due to my heavy weight, I haven’t been able to work for about 10 years, some people even make jokes about it and that really affects me mentally. I can speak 4 languages, I have learned to speak English and Arabic from school, my native language is Kurdish, and I have learned Turkish from watching TV. Despite my expertise, I couldn’t get any jobs, and mostly my applications have been rejected because of my heavy weight, it really upsets me. I hope I can find a job one day so I can buy the daily things I need”
