What holds you back? What keeps you going?

Ex-Salafist Dominik is active on YouTube. He tells others of his experiences in turning his life around. In our Q&A he explains what makes him sad.

Name: Dominik
Age: 27
Hometown: Mönchengladbach

What is most important to you in life?


Realistically, what do you expect from your future?

My future should be an example to others. It should encourage people to think and create a peaceful coexistence with each other.

How do you spend your free time?

I spend my free time doing sports, listening to music and taking part in interesting conversations of any kind.

If you want to reward yourself by doing something special, what do you do?

A round the world trip.

Your country is said to be having many young Muslims who are not integrated into society and go to join and fight for IS - what do you think about that? How does that affect your life?

It makes me really sad, that many young migrants are not integrated and have little interest in being part of society. But what makes me even sadder, is that young people migrate from a country of peace to one of war and there they just throw away the lives and opportunities that they have ahead of them.
