“I am afraid of the future because it is like an adventure, in a big jungle which contains many challenges”.

“ Yes, every minute and every day I am ready to face the future, especially mine, because there's no way to pass my life without passing by it ".

4. Do you usually refer to other countries, especially the U.S. or France, in order to talk about and/or analyze the situation in Lebanon? Explain

“ Lebanon is not a country like France or the U.S. or any other one, it is a country like itself that contains its characteristics and specificities. If we want to talk about it, we have to do it as if we were talking about ourselves, because we are a part of it and it is a part of us."

5. Do you feel that you control yourself and that you are aware of yourself completely?

“ I’m free in my way of thinking and expressing myself, in having an education that helps me to face my society and my future."
