“I have been unemployed for more than a year. I have been trying to find a job but it is not easy. The hardest part about being unemployed is that you feel as if your life is being put on hold. I have friends who have good jobs and they have enough money to get married and buy things. It is not easy but my dad taught me to not be jealous. He always said that the only person you should compare yourself to, is who you were yesterday. So that is what I am trying to do.”
(Tunis, Tunisia)
