Openness to others, to give yourself opportunities

Extract from Récit de Alì • 30 years old • Man • Moroccan

If I have any advice, it is to be open and get involved in the dynamics that are happening here. There are many interesting things at the political, human, humanitarian and cultural level. Even if you only want to think about yourself – something I don’t recommend, but even then it will be good for you to open up to others. I think that if I hadn’t started getting involved in refugee aid groups (like Manba), or the committee for the Arab spring or for the Palestinian cause, I wouldn’t have met the future students of my Arabic classes (thanks to whom I pay my rent) and I couldn’t have done many other things.
