These are a few of my favorite pictures of Carthage. These places mean a lot to me as I was born and raised in these streets and they occupy a huge part both in my memory and heart. During this school year I had to move away and I would always find myself going back to these streets instead of the house I was supposed to go to. I can’t imagine myself living somewhere that is far from the beach or which streets aren’t good for long walks. I made most of my decisions-the important and the silly ones-in these streets and I consider myself lucky for being raised in such a place.
This is just one example of the important work produced YaLa’s citizen journalists, a program funded by the European Union’s Peacebuilding Initiative in order to enable young leaders from across the Middle East and North Africa to document and share their experiences of the region.
