Winner Liberales Book Prize 2017

HERBOREN (2017) - Winner Liberales Book Prize 2017, Belgium:

In this book I speak to the new refugees who arrived in Europe the past years during the largest refugee crisis since World War 2. I also speak to the Belgian citizen through a vibrant discussion on what integration means in Belgium. This is how I started a new life after migrating to Belgium in 2003. From arriving to the refugee center with no money, degree, language or a job to becoming a Belgian citizen and a journalist in the largest media organization of the country.
