My name is Hussein Farhad, I am from Lebanon and I’m 31 years old.

I moved to Berlin to join my wife and child, although now I am with my family, being here is a big challenge for me. I had the impression that everything would look beautiful and that everything would be really well-organised, but after a couple of months I realised it wasn’t that way at all. The first challenged I had to face was learning the language, my wife was a big help for me to overcome that.Despite the fact that I somehow manage to speak the language, I still struggled to find a decent job, after looking for a long time for something interesting, I learned that in Berlin one has really good opportunities in the IT industry, so I started looking for something that could help me get into the IT field, luckily I found out about Devugees which is perfect match for me, because I could start learning something like Web Development that is really very well valued.
