Mohammad, 8, from Daraa, Syria

I am lucky - I can already go to school here! Just 4 hours a day but I really like it! I could learn some German already! Every day I have homework to do and after homework I play football with my friends and the kids from the camp. I made a lot of friends in school already. They are all nice to me. And the teachers too. In Syria I could go to school for two years already. When I’m grown up I hope to become a doctor!

I’m here with my family, my brother, my sister, father and mother. We are here since 2 months. Germany is good because the people are nice here - especially my friends!

I don’t know any football clubs from Syria - only our national team. Hopefully they can play in an international tournament and win a title some day.
