IamA (n) 18 year old Syrian who fled Syria and is now living in Lebanon, and my mother owns an NGO that helps Syrian refugees here in Lebanon AMA!
I saw the previous AMA done yesterday by a teenager living in Aleppo and saw that a lot of what he said, was, well (not to sound like a prick), the ramblings of a teenager whose parents are either afraid of or closely related to the Syrian president. You guys had some pretty good questions that I thought deserved answering so I did this AMA.
I grew up in Damascus, and we are one of the wealthiest families in Syria. I attended Damascus Community School (the American community school here) until it shut down, and I fled to Lebanon in 2012 to continue my education.
My mother owns an NGO here in Lebanon which offers a sort of "Alternative Education" for Syrian refugees who have fled as well and have been out of school for almost 2-3 years. We also continuously work to provide donations, clothes, and a form of housing for the refugees here in Lebanon. There are now over 1 million Syrian refugees living in Lebanon.
I sent my proof to the mods, waiting for approval.
