On Europe Day, the 9th of May, the European Cultural Foundation published their magazine Common Ground. Samira Rafaela contributed to this publication by writing about combatting inequalities and fighting racism from the European Parliament

“From the day my mother invited me on one of her trips to Brussels, the European institutions, the buildings, the flags, and the authority they resemble have always fascinated me. It was only two years ago when I decided to enter the political arena and pursue the ambition that I had from a very young age. I have always felt a strong mission to combat existing social and economic inequalities and protect the rights of marginalised groups. My own experiences with discrimination and exclusion have been my primary motivation to fight for social justice. I believe the lack of equal representation in politics, and beyond politics, is one of the biggest challenges to date.”
