My name is Yasmine Taviot, I’m a 18 years old girl half French and half Moroccan.
I have grown up with theses two different cultures that I feel play a major role in shaping the person I have become. These two cultures helped me to have a certain open-mindedness as I have grown up with oriental and western traditions.
Before coming to London I was living in the beautiful city of Marrakech known as the “ochre city”. A city where the sun is shining, people are smiling. I was studying in the French school of Marrakech.
One passion that is very close to my heart is humanity and understanding people. I believe in treating everyone with kindness and compassion. People who have met me, mostly my close friends say that I live in my “own little fairytale,” where I am able to see beauty in all people. Learning the stories and struggles of the people has taught me to be tolerant and generous to everyone.
I think that if I can find the positive aspects of every single person, they will show you how beautiful humanity is. There’s something to learn from everyone which is why I aspire to meet people from all around the world. I have always been passionate about travelling. I’ve been to 13 different countries and I hope that as I grow, I will be able to experience many more. When I am traveling, I am able to discover myself.
My second passion is volunteering. Helping others and making a positive difference in the world is one of my goals in life.
I am a part of a great community of extraordinary people with stories and big hearts.I have been volunteering for more than a year at the Amal Center, a non-profit organization dedicated to the empowerment of disadvantaged women. I have also done volunteer work in some orphanages.
The dream for my future is to work as a journalist or in an organization such as UNICEF to be able to make a difference. Educating people and making them aware of the world they live in is another way I would like to be able to contribute. Helping people in need, especially the children, is my main ambition.
I hope you enjoyed reading more about me.
