Mimi’s life at OCC and in Barcelona

My name is Jamilla but everyone calls me Mimi. I am 20 years old and I am an ESC volunteer at OCC. I am British but I prefer to refer to myself as English; my mother is English, and my father is Palestinian. Unfortunately, I cannot speak Arabic, however, I have visited Jerusalem many times, where I have lots of family, and I am very proud to be half Arabic. I have an older sister and a younger brother.
