Maitane Perez

"I came with many unnecessary things: rush, prejudices and stereotypes encouraged by my society, which has given me so much but I now consider to be lacking in many other aspects. However, I left Africa with a backpack loaded with the basics, hardly noticeable.

In Lamu, you never know what experience awaits you just around the corner. Overwhelming experiences told in the first person by the main characters of each story force you to relativise Western problems, the strength of which is like a slap saying “wake up! There is a parallel universe to the one in which you live.

Thanks to all the members of Afrikable who made it possible for me to feel more alive than ever and to have the opportunity to offer the best of myself to some marvellous women and children."
