“All of a sudden, I felt something on my body, on my butt. I smelled something and I turned around and saw that he was completely naked and was ready to go and I was like “What?”“Negzzia was reported to Iranian police by the man who tried to rape her during a shooting.”The government decided to give me 148 lashes and I had no choice but to leave my country“She says. Negzzia then fled to Turkey and stayed there for a year and a half before going to France, to Paris.”Here, I applied for asylum to become a refugee. They told me: “You can’t work, you can’t have a job” and after three or four months they started paying me ten euros a day.“, she says. Negzzia ends up living on the streets.
In June 2019, Negzzia officially obtained refugee status and found an apartment. “I just want to tell you that refugees are not in your country to take your place, refugees are not in your country to take your money, take your place, take your opportunities“, she launches. And to conclude:”The refugees are here because they have no choice, because it is very difficult to come as a foreigner, you don’t know the language, you don’t know the laws, you don’t know anything and people treat you very badly. When I said that I am a refugee, people acted so differently to me, and if they were so different and thought so badly of me as a refugee, then what about others?“
