He is in the age of his second youth, as they say.
47 years old.
Surfing instructor from Costa Rica who lived almost in paradise, near to beautiful beaches, full of sun and joy.
He left it all to fight with the Kurds.
He chose to help others because he “heard the call of God” and he sacrificed everything he had to help those who suffer from ISIS. Decision came to him really fast just after he saw an evacuation of Yazidis, who fled to the mountains in the north of Iraq. They stayed in this uninhabited place until help came with helicopters. Yazidis were fighting with each other just to get on board, but there was not enough space for all. American instructor said that he saw a small boy in the helicopter and his eyes showing pure terror. He decided to move and fight against jihadists.
He arrived on the Turkish-Syrian border in October. He joined the Kurdish army and was aligned to the unit “Lions of the West Kurdistan”.
” Kurds are the most extraordinary people, extremely friendly and full of respect for others”
