How do you feel after you got asylum?
We feel as free with a great satisfaction and happiness to see the end of our anxieties after 8 months.

What happens after the positive answer?
We begin to prepare ourselves to live as the Danish citizens.

Have you got other friends in Sandholm?
Although we had some friends in Sandholm, we will remain the two best friends.

How important is it to have a good friend from Syria here in Denmark?
We meet each other in Sandholm and we are from two different cities in Syria, but it´s important to have friends in Denmark, because to be alone, life is hard.

What is the difference to live in Sandholm and outside the center?
To live in Sandholm was as we lived abroad without any hope. But outside Sandholm, the hope is reborn.

What are your dreams for the future?
We want to study; commercials for Mustafa, and techniques in the Fly-mechanical for Ahmed, and we hope to become Danish citizens later.
