I imagine a society where all the world would have the same status, would be treated the same, a society with no racism any more.

By Lauryn  |   From : Saint-Denis France  |   School : Suger High School

Hello ! I am Lauryn, 17 years old. I live in Parisian suburb (Saint-Denis). I live a rather quiet life. I am a high school student as quite the others. I live with my mother, my sister and my cat. My parents came in France when they were children. My mother is from Ivory Coast and my father from Martinique. I am French because I live in France and I was born there (but I know that for certain persons it is not the case because of my skin colour). I don’t suffer from racism directly but rather indirectly.

My parents always told me to fight because life was hard in my case: a girl with immigrant parents and coming from the suburb. In a sense my parents were “immigrants” but no more now, even if they have not forgotten their roots, because they were born all the same over there. Almost every day they speak to me about their country. I have already been in Martinique. It is strange because they call me the « french girl » who speaks Creole.

Unfortunately I haven’t been to Ivory coast because there was a civil war. I think that one day I could write a long and beautiful narrative on my origins. Me my big passion !

I am crazy about video games, I can spend a whole day stuck in front of a console or a computer. For most of the people I am what we call “a geek”. I wonder why the society needs to put people in compartments. I think that I could never feel home in this society. I imagine a society where all the world would have the same status, would be treated the same, a society with no racism any more.
