Sami Younis, 21
“When I think of Algeria, I think of pride, rebellion, and strength.”
Sid Oudainia Beaulieu, 20
“I am proud to be born into this cultural mix between Algeria and France. I think that a culture positively develops once it is inspired by others without losing its own.”
Tak Bengana, 20
