Being an immigrant in northern Europe is a complicated thing. As a child I did not consider myself Swedish nor they did consider me Swedish, they called me ‘black head’… I do not consider myself Swedish or Spanish, I consider myself from Cambados and from the south of Stockholm, neither more nor less. I am a citizen of the world and I always will be.
