My name is Yousra and I am Moroccan.You have probably heard a lot of things about my country but certainly not as much as I have heard about yours.Anyway  Morocco is my country but not my single identity . thanks to Tangier’s strategic  emplacement ,it was an international city and a source of inspiration for a lot of artists , writers, passengers … which have  given to Tangier a very rich culture and inheritance.As a consequence I talk four languages which has allowed me to have a global vision about the world and to be open-minded .That  international inheritance has made of me someone who is interested by art even if I am not really an artist, by books because I enjoy this marvelous feeling of being someone else and to live someone else’s experiences. In addition to that I like travelling to discover other cultures and to escape from routine , to see other people with other way of life maybe with unprivileged conditions .

As I said you have probably heard a lot of things about Morocco . Most of foreigners that have never been in Morocco  and that I have met have stereotype ideas spread by medias  that morocco is a desert where people are still using camels as a mean of transport and where civilization is a myth.In fact Morocco has progressed a lot even if we still take pictures with camels from time to time. What makes me really proud of my country is the political stability and security .The kindness and the warming welcome of the Morrocans  is something which is world-known .Moroccan food is also famous all over the world for being delicious. The landscape in morocco is incredible  you can find the sea ,the ocean,  mountains, snow,desert,dunes….

Morocco is a fantastic country , but we still have a lot of progress to make : in the field of education ,tolerance , gender equality and  xenophobia.

  1. Hi, Yousra, I'm Taryn. It's awesome that your city has so much culture. I love your photos! You live in a gorgeous place. I think it's incredible that you speak FOUR languages. I only speak English, but I would love to learn more. When did you learn them? Reading is one of my favorite things to do. My favorite book is The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. What's your's? I love travelling, as well. Though I've never been out of the US before, I plan on travelling around Europe and Asia once I graduate. Moroccan food is delicious. I went to a Moroccan restaurant in Southern California and though I'm sure it's incomparable to true Moroccan food, it was wonderful. It must be unbelievable living in a place with so much culture and variation in landscape. I'm looking forward to getting to know more about you, your life, and your culture.

  2. Hi Taryn,
    I am really happy hearing you saying beautiful words about my city and my country . I hope you can come to visit us someday and eat true Moroccan food.I am also interested and amazed by your culture and your social devloppement.
    Unfortunately I didn't read The perks of being a Wallflower , I have just seen the movie and It was incredibly emotional. I guess that the book is better than the movie. I am a huge fan of harry potter books and movies , "1984" of George Orwell is also one of my favourites books .Have you ever heard about it ?
    I hope that we can learn new things about one and other this year.
