I see my ghost coming from afar
GERMANY TOUR | 9-18 APRIL 2023
“I’m going to share my problems in front of everyone without being shy”
RANIA, ACTOR | I SEE MY GHOST COMING FROM AFAR
“Theatre has given me strength. I didn’t used to have the courage before Seenaryo to face my fears, and talk about being black and Lebanese in front of people. Now I have the courage to talk clearly. I know how to stand on stage and interact with people, even from different nationalities.
I’m a black girl who lives in a racist country, and I grew up not appreciating my skin colour and my hair. I used to hide in the corner because of people’s mean words, especially at school. Seenaryo offered me the opportunity to talk about it. I wasn’t sure if this was a good idea because I was ashamed. For me, Seenaryo was my way to tell people what I’m feeling and how I’m proud of myself and my blackness .
Now I’m going to share my problems in front of everyone without being shy. I’m discovering myself more and building my personality. I’m proud of what I’m doing even if others reject me.”
