Wael, 15, from Aleppo, Syria

My parents sent my older brother and me away from Syria because of the war. My parents are still in Syria, but they are well. I am lucky that we can talk on the phone every now and then. I hope they can also come here soon! I often think of the beautiful times when our family was all together at home!

My dream is to become an engineer after school, but I can not go to school yet. I was in a private school in Syria where I enjoyed mathematics, history and painting.
