Manissa, 6, from Qamishli, Syria

In Syria I went to kindergarden, but I already learned to write single letters there. I also go to the kindergarden here in Birkach. There I have already made some German friends and therefore I can speak some German already.

Now I hope that I can go to school soon. But my parents have not yet found a place for me. I am really looking forward to that! I would like to learn to read and write. And when Iā€™m grown up I would like to become a teacher.
