We’re back again, this time with an interview with the one and only Ahmed RA KA BA! Ahmed will tell us some more about his difficult time coming to Europe & his road to victory. He has an amazing story to tell. Don’t hesitate, just read it!
Rakaba! You’ve got an amazing story which deserves nothing but respect… Can you tell the people who don’t know your background a little bit about it?
My name is Ahmed Rakaba and I am from Libia. So I grew up in Libia until 2016. In 2016, I got some problems in my country. So then I tried to go and live in another country. That’s why I live in Germany now. It was not easy, because I had everything in Libia and I had to leave everything behind. You need to learn a new language, and you know nothing about this country. That is why it’s so hard.
I have something really beautiful to say. I have the skills to play street soccer. Street soccer saved my life, so I started to play again in Germany. I gained a lot of friends, and won a lot of tournaments. After I started to learn a lot about the country and the people here, I was able to make my life beautiful again here.
Who is your motivation?
There is one thing that motivates me, and that is that when I play, I make a lot of people happy with my skills. Street soccer brought new people in my life. I love street soccer! I grew up with street soccer, so it’s like drinking water for me; you HAVE to do it every single day.
