Together We Stand Strong

Sometimes I have felt different because of my appearance

“I was adopted from Colombia and came to Sweden when I was 6 months old.  Thanks to the support from my family and girlfriend I gained the courage to contact my biological family. The first time I talked to them was a year ago, it was with mixed feelings and many questions needed to be answered. Nowadays we often talk but it´s hard because my Spanish is limited. I understand more than I can talk. Sometimes I have felt different because of my appearance. Mainly when I played soccer or floorball. It was common for opponents to call me monkey etc. I´m confident enough to not care but of course I got pissed off.”
