Ferad is from Bulgaria. He moved to Denmark in 2013 after his divorce. He sold his house and other belongings before coming to Denmark so he could start a new life here.
He has a young daughter in Bulgaria who lives with his ex-wife and step-father. A hard thing for Ferad is not being close to his daughter but he hopes his decision to move here will provide future opportunities for his daughter.
In Bulgaria he worked in construction and ran his own successful business. In Denmark he works as a cleaner. He considers this temporary but unavoidable until he can speak fluent Danish.
He has a bachelors degree from Bulgaria in social pedagogy. In future he would like to pursue a masters degree in psychology and use his qualifications to help children with disabilities or victims of domestic violence.
He has completed the local Danish language school course but he wants to continue language classes through an adult education centre so that he can undertake his masters degree.
