“Due to my love for fixing radios and electronics, I quit school. My father had a shop for agricultural medicine, and I was going there with him, but I was not staying at the shop because I wanted to spend time at the next-door shop that was fixing TVs and ask questions, and I learned a lot this way. At the beginning, I failed a lot and couldn’t fix anything, but I started to learn and succeed later on. When I first started, channel receiver devices were few and were expensive so I built a device that could search for local Kurdish channels. There used to be a channel called Med TV, I was able to get the channel for my village and it made everyone happy, that was my first achievement. As I’ve gotten old, I cannot do the same work anymore because it has affected my sight. I have had a lot of job offers from European countries, but I will never leave my country”.
