What do you like about the classes, asks Loubna, The Experience Coordinator at Palais Amani.
Fatimazahra: What I like the most is getting to know people from all around the world. Help them discover what we are known for. Through walking around the Old Medina and picking all the fresh vegetables. Things that I like, myself.
Loubna: If you had a previous job, can you compare the past job from the one you have now?
Fatimazahra: Actually this was my first job in the tourism industry. Therefore, I can’t express how comfortable I feel every day leaving home to come to the Palais Amani.
Life in the Medina:
Fatimazahra is a Fassi. She was born in Fes then grew up in the new town, a bit far from the Old Medina. “By the way, this was the gate for me to learn more about my city. Since everything I need to know is here in the Old Medina.” She adds.
What is it like for you as a young modern Moroccan to live and/or work in the medina?
Fatimazahra: There is a stereotype that only old people work in the old Medina, since it’s handy crafts area. But, to my surprise, I found that the majority of people working here are young. And this is thanks to the diversity of activities that you might do in the Old Medina
