Cane Harakuta: They play a big role. We all have stereotypes in our heads, me too. But now I’m living and working here, I believe stereotypes are something you get told, but when we experience it, we learn it. We accept the differences and differentiate better.
There was a situation where I was told, that in Africa it is more about respect than in Germany. Here it is also about respect, but you work hard for it. It doesn’t matter if you are young or old, in Africa you must respect the old people because they are old. Here it is more about the work you have done than the age you have. Which in my opinion is a good thing.
