Where are you from?

I am from Morocco…. and Germany. I am a little bit of both (laughing – ed.).

Do you feel more Moroccan or German?

It is actually a difficult question. I am thinking in German and feeling in Moroccan. People are different in the two countries. In Germany people are more strict, always on time, never late, following the rules… I actually never liked this mentality, you are so organised, you do nothing else a part from work. And in Morocco you never make an appointment. You often say “let’s meet tomorrow” and it can be tomorrow morning, tomorrow during lunch or tomorrow evening…you almost never know…Next time you say let’s meet at 15.00 and still nobody shows up….there is just a different concept of time.

But I must admit I appreciate the German mentality now!
