My name is Mouhcine and I’m 36 years old. I live in Quaà Asserasse, a village in North Morocco on the Mediterranean coast. I attended school until I was 15 years old and was always the best in my class. But our financial situation meant that I couldn’t continue my studies.Financial issues meant that I left school early and left for Europe. I was an ambitious young man who wanted to work in Europe. They nevertheless caught me each time without papers and sent me back.
