For the #1 episode of We Belong Podcast we traveled to France to meet Ines Seddiki, founder of Ghett’up. She is a French-Moroccan young activist and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) professional living in the banlieues of Paris. In the 80s, her parents immigrated to France to pursue ideals of liberty and equality. From a very young age, Inés faced injustice and this motivated her to take action. Since 2016, her NGO Ghett’up has impacted more than 2000 young people in the banlieues of Paris. In the conversation with Ines, we discussed the importance of owning our story and identities, reflected on what it means to grow up in a banlieue and how to turn stigma into strength.
