“My name is Hussein. My parents are from Beirut, Lebanon, and me and my siblings are the first generation in my family to be born and raised in Germany, Berlin to be exact.``

“I’m really happy about that because Berlin’s culture is amazing. In this city it doesn’t matter if you are black or white, Jew or Muslim, hetero- or homosexual, poor or rich. It is one of the most diverse cities. It gives so many people a feeling of belonging. The freedom to do whatever and be whoever you want is what makes the city unique. I’m more than proud to be a part of this place and called it my ‚home’.”
