Hello and thanks for creating a place like this


Recommended Posts

My name's Zaki. I were born in Iraq but fled to Sweden about two years ago. I have my own experiences which I haven't talked too much about before but I thought a place like this would make it way easier to do so and I'd get a good response back. That's always something. I joined earlier today and I just couldn't resist noticing how good this place looked to be set up. I want to thank the creator of this site for making sure a safe place like this exist.
