Being an immigrant myself, Hamide‘s (Şeyda Özçetin and Seda Özçetin) story is very close to mine as well.. some very similar trials and tribulations… been a ‘proud’ alien in my own home-country for many years, then being pushed out due to economic conditions and been living here and there.. underemployment.. sure! been there, done that.. not only me, my mom as well – educated as a space engineer she currently works as a nanny in London. I’m not being deported though, but I’ve been in a situation when Italian mafia was hunting us… not a boring life for sure )) whatever doesn’t kill us, makes us stronger, or at least I hope so!
I’m happy that this project done by Julian Andrews , Megan Kessler, Kate Puglia, Laura McLaughlin, and Daisy Bowes Williamson as part of our cross-cultural psychology course at DIS is really out there now and hopefully it will bring some changes! Well done, “Jeg Danske!”, well done!
