I’m Palestinian, Syrian, and Dutch. I came to the Netherlands in 2017. I studied English language and literature at Damascus University in Syria before doing my MBA in Bahrain. I’m a writer, playwright, public speaker and storyteller. I’ve published two books (وطن وخبز وذاكرة (Homeland, Bread, and Memory); لعبة الاختباء (Hide & Seek)), poems, chapters (Iemand zetten gewoon het licht aan), and a play (‘The Lost Humanity’). The Migrantour Utrecht project gives me the opportunity to learn about how people coming to the Netherlands form a relationship with their new place. Creating a link between the places one is talking about on the tour and one’s own personal experiences makes Migrantour unique, resisting cliché. For me, the most interesting tour stop is Ubuntuhuis. It focuses on the importance of recognising the needs of others – the basic needs of people with undocumented status. I love the Ubuntu greeting: ‘I see you.’/’I am here.’ It says so much.
