Ismael is from Daraa in Syria. He fled (partly) because of the difficulties in continuing his education. . Once in Germany, Ismael moved to Ingolstadt (two years ago) and was able to continue 11th grade in high-school (Fachoberschule). He came to Ingolstadt because a friend lived there and he liked it, so he stayed and found more friends. In the beginning he couldn’t speak any German and found it very difficult to communicate. After studying hard, he was able to speak to lots of people and became more fluent. His professional goal is to study computer science and therefore is already specializing in technology at his school. He gives the advice to other refugees not to be afraid to talk to the local population in order to adapt to the new society. It is not an easy task and one has to be active and open-minded.
