I am an Algerian-French born and raised in France. I am the youngest of four boys, and a brother to two sisters. As a native of France, i saw beyond the exquisite culture, fashion, and cuisine. While Americans often perceive France as a liberal, fashionable, and often ideal nation, that is not entirely true. Algerians face heavy racism every day, often as the inferior race in France. Being Algerian, succeeding in France was not even a notion one would ever consider. I came to America to succeed and to be the face of diversity, both literally and metaphorically. What better way to achieve both goals? Modeling...
I want to be the Algerian-French Model that can appropriatly display the diversities of our nations. I find my appearence to be an advantage in the modeling industry, as i can be French in one shoot, Italian the next, and perhaps Brazilian in another--most importantly Algerian. As a model, i can mold my looks to the likes of the clients in a sophisticated, high-culture fashion. I want to be the representation to proud Arabs, signficantly different than the typical " terrorist" portrayed arabs.
