Ali Gekerkhon
Social coach and language mediator / Arabic, Kurdish and English

My name is Gekerkhon Ali, I am 27 years old and come from Syria.

I studied Psychology in Syria for four years, but because of the war I could not finish my studies.
As a pastor and psychological counsellor, I worked for UNICEF for two years in a refugee camp in Iraq.

Three and a half years ago I immigrated/relocated/moved to Germany and since then I have been trying to overcome the difficult challenges here. I have done it, because I now speak the German language and work as a social coach and interpreter.

Soon I would like to complete my studies at the University of Duisburg-Essen. The many serious situations in Syria helped a lot with my personality development. I also want to help other people and guide them on their journey to reach their goals.
