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.
