Appie, television repairman

"I came in 1989, when I was 14 years old, through family reunification from Morocco to the Netherlands. At that time my father lived here already since 20 years. I have three children, in the photo on the computer screen are my two daughters. I repair TV's, electronics, mechanics, everything really. It used to be just a hobby, but already since ten or fifteen years it's really more than a hobby; five years ago I opened this business. I started to tinker with these things when I was five or six. I have a vocational training in electronics, but that was mainly just for the papers."
