My name is Melissa, I’m from Berlin, I was born in Berlin, yeah I live here and I love it.
What does We Are Here mean to you?
I’m really happy to live in Berlin because I know other cities and I know it’s different to live as a black person in Berlin, yeah I’m German but, for the German people you know it doesn’t… it’s like you’re German, you look like German, it’s like I’m German but I’m black German. I would say, in Berlin you have a lot of opportunities to do stuff, a lot of people come to Berlin to do their stuff, you have so many creative people here.
