Ibrahim talks about his expectations, his experience as an African in Europe, the obstacles he faced when he first came, racism and why he does not want to leave the Netherlands.

He believes that Holland is one of the best countries in western Europe.

"Discipline. They do everything systematically, compared to the country I come from .... They are tolerant ... they house you, give you money, they take care of your health and everything you may think of."
