Meet our participants: Ola from Germany

Ola's story:

"My name is Ola, which is a short form of the name Alexandra in Poland. I have two homes, one in Germany and one in Poland. When I was a child I did not want to be called Ola because I could not relate to Poland. Now I prefer the short form of Ola. But when I come home to Germany everyone calls me Alex. So I sometimes feel that I have two different Identities. One as Alex and one as Ola. On the picture you can see both of my countries and the letter X which marks my place in between."
