I tried to resume my studies here in Syria, yet it is very expensive to go to private schools. I just can't afford it. Free education in Iraq was such a good system. Everybody was able to get free education. I keep reading physics books, though, so that I keep the knowledge fresh.
My hobbies are reading, decor designing, learning languages and sports.
That type of work has been my ambition for a long time. My devotion and love for my work came from my father, who is a well-known actor back in my home.
Otherwise, I like to listen to soft, classical music.

I speak four languages which are Arabic, Turkish, Kurdish, and Kuldani and some English. My hobbies are singing rap songs and break dance. My ambition is to finish my studies and go to Fine Arts college.
Right now I spend most of my time singing and dancing with my friends which I love.

The one scene I will never forget is when three bombs exploded near my school. I remember the sounds of the explosions were very loud and I remember how the windows in my classroom all were destroyed. I remember very well how my father was carrying me and running through thr streets trying to get me out of the danger when the Iraqi soldiers started, after the explosion, started to randomly shooting.
I like to make new friends. It is harsh on me remembering my friend and colleague who sat next to me in school and who was run over by an unknown. My wish is to have a safer Iraq and for me to go back to Iraq.
My name is Yousef Abid and I am ten years old. I am in 3rd grade.
I have never seen my Dad except the photos that my Mom had. My mother and father got divorced before I was born.
I came to Syria with my Mom in 2007 because of the bad security situation and after we were threatened by the Mahdi Army.
My Mom works as a waitress in a cafeteria in Syria.
I don't want to go back to Iraq right now. Syria is a better place to live in.
My only wish is to see the Statue of Liberty in the New York and take pictures there. And my ambition is to study medicine.
