We‘re looking for your stories - get involved

Dreams can be crushed, fear can rule your life, your friends can turn on you. Overcoming these obstacles is a challenge we share. We want to hear from you: What keeps you from being who you want to be?

No matter where you go - there’s one thing you cannot escape: prejudices, stereotypes, judgment. Alina, Amin and Ka-yeon know how this feels. They are labeled: “one of the Roma”, “only a foreigner”, “the one who doesn’t fit in”. Although none of them wanted it to be this way, it is other people’s judgments that determine their identity. “There are even days when I think to myself: The others are right. What they say is right - we are just not capable of getting anywhere in life,” says Alina. But she tries nonetheless.

What are the challenges you face? What troubles you? What makes your life hard?
