My name is Hanan KamalShuuki Girgis. I was born in El Quossia on the 15th january 1983 and I am twenty one. There are six members of my family: my father and mother, my brother, two sisters and myself.

My hobbies are reading and listening to music. I studied at the faculty of Education in Assiut and I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Education.

I belong to the Coptic Orthodox church which has as its head Pope Shenouda. In Qoussia our church is led by Bishop Thomas. In our church there are many ministries or types of service such as working with children or old people, with boys and girls, or with those who are handicapped and cant walk or unable to hear or speak. There is also an orphanage. 

I am serving the Church at Anafora and do the laundry of clothes and cleaning in the kitchen. Anafora is a big place and consists of a farm, two churches, a canal and pond system, guest chalets, a villa with a big meeting room and beautiful library which has many English, Swedish, French and Arabic books. 

At Anafora we have planted many crops. We harvest apples, pears, figs, dates, prickly pears, grapes, beans, potatoes, onions and guavas. There are many animals and birds on the farm such as cows, sheep, donkeys, goats, pigeons, ducks and chickens.

We would be very happy if you came to Anafora to see us.

I am very happy to be in Sweden and want to learn many things in Sweden.
