Trainees tell their story.
My name is Reyhane, I’m 26 years old and I come from Iran.
I went to school there and graduated from high school. I did portrait drawing as an optional subject. After high school I worked as a photographer in a shop. I came to Germany in 2013.
My hobbies are photography, travel and I like swimming.
What have we done so far and why is that good for us?
Why did we choose dual vocational training?
What tips can you give to other young refugees who may be interested in dual vocational training?
„Don’t be afraid of learning the language; you’ll get a lot of help. Work hard at the vocational training.
If you are interested in craftsmanship and practical work, you can easily work in the manual-craft and practical sector.
Women can also work in the craft sector. You can be a woman and be feminine, but still work in the craftsmanship-technical sector.
There is no “male” or “female” work. As a woman, you shouldn’t be afraid to assert yourself and prevail.“
