My name is Samir. I was born and raised in Bosnia. Today, I am a Danish citizen. I made a degree in MA, Political Science and I now work as a senior consultant.
I take part in ”My Asylum” because I am needed. I think it’s a great idea to help children and young people to educate in order for them to have a better future.
My own upbringing was safe until the war broke out in Bosnia in 1993. During the escape, my family was split up across many countries. My brother and some other family members went to the United States. Some went to England. I went to Denmark.
I was 17 years old when I ended up in Denmark. I actually have only a few experiences from the life at the asylum centers. Some Danish friends offered me to stay with them. After a while in Denmark I managed to trace my parents to a Croatian refugee camp. My parents later got their house back in Bosnia and are living there now.
I was granted asylum , and moved into a home share. For me, it was a good way to integrate into the Danish society. I am educated now. I have a great job and live together with my lovely girlfriend.
