My name is Said and I grew up in the Fès district in Morocco. That's where I learned tailoring. I had the feeling that opportunities would be better elsewhere, so in 2015 I first went to Turkey and then Greece. Eventually I ended up in Germany. At that time I was 30 years old and hoped to find work opportunities in Germany.
In fact I did manage to extend my technical skills at a vocational college there. However, my residence permit expired after almost two years. I had to return to Morocco in 2017. That was difficult at first, but then I found out about the "MoroccanGerman Information Centre for Migration and Vocational Integration" (referred to as EIMA) in Casablanca.
