“Life is very precious”

“I came to Denmark near the end of 2011 when I was 18 years old. I was happy and feeling good, but later I had many problems. One of the problems was in 2013 when I was diagnosed with cancer. I had to go to the doctor, and he explained to me that it was very dangerous. He even said that I might die.

I was treated in different hospitals and had many operations. Then I was cured. After this dangerous episode, I feel that life is very precious. I must be happy and smiling to enjoy life, and the moments I live. Life is precious, and this is the secret of my smiling and happiness.

I dream of a peaceful life here in Denmark. I finished my 9th year in VUC, and now I am having a break from school to follow my asylum case and trying to reopen my case with the Immigration Service”.

Mouase from Chad, 24 years old.
