My German Life


I am a baby of fifty-three but young in heart. My life in Germany gave me the chance to be the change I want to see.
I register onto this MOOC to know how to start my career according the German standard and how to fit the German employers expectations.
I was a teacher of English & Life Skills trainer in Damascus and Lattakia, Syria.
My motto in life is "We are what we value". Achievement and honesty are my value not just in career but also in life.
My short-term career plan is to integrate smartly to build my freelance job. Therefore, I am studying to be 'social worker'.
In 2020s, I will have my own Mindfulness strategy which may help people who come from my area to fit into Europe and work not just depend on the social aid.
