I am not as weak as they think.
I am a refugee, therefore I am. Asylum made me stronger.
During my asylum journey, I faced many difficulties but also learned many lessons. I am still offended when people associate being a refugee with being weak, uneducated, and ignorant – being a good for nothing person.
This is not me. I have always strived to change these perceptions about refugees. Despite the negativity around me, I have looked to the future with optimism, and will continue to do so. I am someone who loves to volunteer. I donated my time to organizations to learn new skills and at the same time be of help. I want to study pharmacy, and I love teaching too. Before volunteering with UNICEF, I taught biology to college students.
My love of volunteering is because I understand that at some point in life, we all need the help of others. I am aware of exactly how we feel when we need a helping hand. I was there, and I do not want those students to struggle the way I did.
It is a responsibility and a duty.
