“While applying for my high school diploma, I got really high grades. I was third in Sarekane area and sixth in Hasakah. After finishing high school, I stopped my education for one year because of the war in 2012. All of my school records and files were burned so I recovered them in Damascus and restarted my education in Latakia, I was working in a pharmacy while studying, it was a great experience for me. I graduated in 2016 and opened my own pharmacy. I was very afraid at first because the patients’ lives were in my hands, but I started growing confidence day by day. In 2019, Turkey started an attack on our city, and all we could do was to leave the city and treat the wounded. Then I started living in Qamishli and five months ago I reopened another pharmacy.”
