Marouf Hisaara, hotel manager, 23
I lived for five years in Toronto, Canada. My whole family is in Canada. I came back to Gaza because it’s my country. All my friends are here. I work now as manager of a hotel owned by family, but I might go back to Canada because I want to be a chef. It’s a really hard, tough life here in Gaza. So many people are poor. They just want a job. I don’t like politics. I don’t really care who won the elections, but I don’t think the situation is going to get better for the next 10 years.
