"At UNHCR, I have met extraordinary people, men and women, who have shown me their passion, their dedication and their commitment to refugees. I want in my own way to contribute, to add a stone to the structure. I have had the good fortune to have been born in a rich country, to live thanks to music.

Getting involved with UNHCR is a way for me to give back some of what life has offered me."
