The 6-year journey in Ukraine
"Difficulties in your life do not come to destroy you but to help you realize your hidden potential and power. Let difficulties know that you too are difficult."
vul Pacir Zainulabidin Abdul Kalam – Atomic Scientist and President of India
Is it hard to leave everything behind to pursue your dream? It surely isn’t. My name is Hussein Korkor, I came all the way from the land of the pharaohs (Egypt) to chase my dream of becoming a medical doctor. My first battle was to convince my parents to allow me to leave my own country, it wasn’t easy but they supported saying, “if that is what you want we won’t hold you down”. I came to Ukraine in 2014 when the war situation wasn’t stable. It was very hard to adapt in a county without knowing its language. And that was my first lesson Ukraine gave me. Learning the language of the place you live in, knowing it’s people and their culture.
