Synopsis:
‘There was a time when I wanted straight hair, because then I would be normal.’ Thirteen-year-old Olivia talks about about her hair and what it’s like growing up in Luxembourg as a mixed-race kid.

Comments:
Olivia is my niece and when she shared her experience, I was very touched, because it illustrates how hard it is to live in Luxembourg when you look different. Our conversation was recorded and cut it into a voice over. Then we shot images to illustrate her testimony. (Max Jacoby)
