When somebody asks me where I’m originally from in Germany, I often hesitate to answer frankly… too many prejudices and negative stereotypes come with it. Many make fun of the accent, claim the people there from are narrow-minded and criticize (actually not unjustified) the political movements going on there. Nevertheless it’s the place where I grew up, where I had a great childhood, where I went to school and where I got shaped. A place I will always have a connection to. Because it’s home.
