Meet Safa From Tunisia

I am Senior Executive in Operations & Product Development department.

The streets are decorated with flags everywhere to take off the big ceremony.

- What do you think are the best things that resembles your country the most?
The best things that resembles my country the most are:
Museum (the most amazing museum of mosaics in the world can be found in Tunis), historical places (Carthage, the powerful beauty of the El Djem Amphitheatre and the Great Mosque of Kairoua), the magic of light and the bare purity of the desert, the beaches and Djerba island, food (all the flavors you could imagine can be found in Tunisia) and olive oil (in Tunisia, olive oil is a lot more than food).
- Any quote you would like to share about your country?
” If the people will to live,
Providence is destined to favorably respond
And night is destined to fold
And the chains are certain to be broken
And he who has not embraced the love of life
Will evaporate in its atmosphere and disappear ”
– Aboul-Qacem Echebbi
