Sama is 30 years old. She is physically transitioning and undergoing hormone treatment. She arrived in France at the end of 2018 and applied for asylum. She ran away from Morocco because she was facing persecution. She was imprisoned for three months in Boulmharez due to her gender identity. She lives as a woman and identifies as a woman.
We met her in her new home in Lyon.
