A Kurdish girl nominated herself for a seat in the European Union and her nomination number is 13.

 

Sham Ahmed says “I was a little girl when I came from Kurdistan to Europe. I was four years old, now after almost 20 years. I see myself not only as a proud Kurd, but also as a proud European.” She elaborates “As a student, I learn on daily basis the importance of the European Union, because of the good and great relations between us,” adding “I travel a lot throughout our beautiful member states that are so full of history and culture.”

 

She adds “Here in Europe many things are going well, but we can be much better, I want to be sure that we have a fair, socially democratic and inclusive European Union, and that the EU is a suitable place for everyone to develop themselves,” concluding her statement with saying “The future of Europe is our future.”

 

The European Union elections are due to take place on May 26 with the participation of 27 countries, with thousands of candidates in the race for a parliamentary seat of the 705-seat parliament.
