Portraits of women with different roots

The idea behind this is to document strong women from different countries who found a home for themselves and their families in my hometown. Immigrants are often the subject of "bad press" and through this photo series (a work in progress) I want to show a different side of immigrant life. I want to know why they came to Belgium and Leuven and hope to hear that story from them in their own words. I will put a picture with their story, one that shows them building a new life in this country. Their roots may be different, their hopes and dreams will be very similar to our own.
