My name is Ahmed. I'm 31 years old. I live in Tangier in northern Morocco. I was still a schoolboy the first time I arrived in Europe. I lived for a few years in a reception centre for minors in Spain. That wasn’t easy for me as a teenager.
I worked in the gardening sector, hotel management and the iron industry during my stay in Europe.
In search of future prospects
I spent a few years in Spain. Belgium and Germany and then decided to return to my home city. I was looking for new opportunities, but it wasn’t easy to get started. A lot had changed since I left the country as a young boy.
