“I like going to school so much! I dream of becoming a doctor when I grow up”

Younes’ story is part of the UN International Organisation for Migration (IOM) series: “i am a migrant“.* Younes’ country of origin is Iraq and his current country is Greece, 1,938 kms. from home.

“My name is Younes, I’m 10 years old and I come from Iraq. I live here, at the open accommodation center of Drama, with my mom, my sister and my brother. Our dad is not with us.

I recently started going to the Greek primary school every day. The Greek language course is my favorite, and I don’t find it difficult to learn.

I have Greek friends and classmates at school. When the bell rings and we go outside for a break, we play with the ball in the school yard all together.

I like going to school so much! I dream of becoming a doctor when I grow up.”

*IOM Greece is ensuring the safe transportation of pupils from the Accommodation Centers to schools and has equipped them with school kits including notebooks, pens, pencils and other necessary school material, with support from the European Commission’s Civil Protection & Humanitarian Aid Operations Office.
