I was 11-years-old when the war started in my country Syria. I was too young to understand what was actually happening. Before the war started I had many dreams. I wanted to be a doctor, be with my friends forever, or grow older at the same place where I lived. But suddenly, I found myself without dreams, friends and dolls. I woke up one morning and everywhere was full of hatred, I have seen many horrific scenes that are still stuck in my brain.
I had to change the place where I live to start a new life again, but I became despaired, secluded, more shy and more nervous.
I was going to school again, but still nervous and shy. I tried to start making friends and have a new social life. I spent my birthday very sick.
i did not like the situation so I start to be social person and be freed from being introvert
I was still without dreams, but as I saw many of my friends have a dreams l asked myself, " Why should I be depressed while life goes on out there?". So I searched within myself and I finally found what I want.
I am steadily advancing to my new dreams, without fearing the future or letting my past affect me. My birthday is this month and I am filled with happiness with my new friends and dreams.
What I am trying to say is that, no matter what is happening to you, do not give up on your dreams. I did not allow the war to affect my future and so you; do not allow the past to negatively change you and affect your future. You have full control of your life.
Unfortunately, I have met many people who have no dreams in their lives. But we are born with a purpose and we have to seek to find and achieve it. If you want to make your future bright and want to make your dreams come true: start TODAY. We are the change we make in the world when we decide to start with ourselves.
