My name is Ezekiel Wendtoin Nikiema and I am from Burkina Faso. I am a musician and I have toured in Germany. Thanks to the PASCH-initiative, I cannot only communicate in German, I can even sing in the language!

I was born in Ouagadougou, the capital of Burkina Faso, in 1991. I spent my school years at the Lycée Mixte de Gounghin, which is a PASCH-school. I started learning German in my tenth school grade, in 2006, and I quickly fell in love with the language.
