Abo Nasser had studied computer science in Syria. He started out as a trainee at Freudenberg, took additional German courses and received a contract for dual IT training.
Since completing his training, he has worked as a service desk technician at Freudenberg. Unfortunately, the opportunity to give his parents a hug is gone forever. Both died of Covid-19 in 2021. “But they saw everything. Every day, we were in contact virtually, and they were aware of everything that I accomplished,” he says. “Life goes on – thanks in part to the many friends and supporters that I‘ve found here, whether in the training center, in my circle of coworkers, or in management.”
His home? “Home is wherever you feel comfortable. I feel comfortable here now,” he says, smiling and tracing a circle in the air with his forefinger. He, his wife and his small son have had German citizenship since April 2022. The family’s co-op apartment is just a few kilometers from the Weinheim Industrial Park.
