Apart from school , he enjoys sports such as soccer and swimming. He has been swimming for 8 years. Before the war , he participated in competitions and received many awards.
Swimmsing is not his hobby, it’s his passion. But with the war, he had to stop swimming because the pool was closed and it was not safe to go outside. He feels left out because he devoted so many years to this sport.
