I have left Russia to come in France in 2007 with my two children. I have been helped a lot by local associations for migrants and refugees. For instance, I have been provided with housing and food for lunch and dinner.
Later, I have moved in my brother’s place but I didn’t like it at all because I could do nothing and I just stayed at home doing nothing. His house was small with only one living room and a bedroom. I arrived to Strasbourg in 2011. I could not benefit from social housing so I looked for private housing and I found a flat. Then I looked for a job and I obtained my first job in a packing company. I have resumed French classes with a local association. I wanted to pass a training to obtain a professional qualification to work in early childhood care, as it had always been my dream. However, due to the lack of job offers in this area, I had to undertake professional training for being an employee in supermarkets in charge of filling shelves. I have started my first missions on the 25th of March.
