My name is Marzouk and I’m 32 years old. I live in Arekmane in north-eastern Morocco. I’ve achieved my goal: having my own hairdressing salon. Working as a hairdresser is something I’ve always loved.
Many young people from my region in Morocco set off for Europe in 2013. I was one of them. I went to my brother in Germany to find a job.
I worked on construction sites during my stay there. I also enjoyed styling the hair of the people around me.
I decided to go to Spain to find new opportunities. On my journey south, the French authorities deported me back to Morocco in 2017.
