My #PledgeToListen

I pledge to listen to you. Will you listen to me?

I pledge not to demonize anyone who holds certain opinions, views or beliefs, but instead will try to understand their reasons and their arguments and express my own views in return. That’s it.

In 2015, while thinking about the current developments around the world, during the past decade, living in Europe, born in Germany, witnessing the refugee crises from Portugal, where I moved to, in 2005, I thought one had to do something to help build bridges, instead of just continuing one’s life as if nothing had changed! That’s when I decided to learn Arabic, via an online course, supported by the EU. Doing so, I started to discover a new world, being curious to know more about all these Arab countries and the people who had to flee their homes and had come to Europe, as a consequence of war.

I am still looking for possibilities to enlarge my horizon. That’s why I’d love to meet as many people as possible, who could introduce me to their culture! Getting the opportunity to travel to Egypt, would be an occasion to do so!

I've recruited 9 others for the #PledgeToListen
