I hated every part of it. I was hungry all day and during exercising I felt dizzy and weak. I quit after a while because I didn’t think it was worth it. That same struggle is what the documentary I’m sharing today is about, dieting. It’s called: Hungry for Change.

My personal opinion on human migration

Migration. It’s a huuuuge topic in The Netherlands if we’re talking about politics and if you’d ask me: it always has been.
