Salma Omari is the first major YouTube star with a Moroccan background in the Netherlands. She has more than half a million followers on Insta and 125,000 on YouTube and she is also in the music business. However, I still struggled with some comments.

Al-Omari found the documentary facing, and she even cried the first time she saw it. “It felt like a mirror I looked at, a mirror that made me realize I needed to start working on myself.” In some scenes she comes out so violent that she thought to herself: Selma, act normally. “I’ve noticed that I have a lot of anger inside of me. I know anger is my fuel, but the documentary made me realize that I can also handle that anger differently.” The young woman seems particularly sensitive to women of immigrant descent who are “picking each other up and down each other”. “That’s the only rage I have against people who don’t see that you should applaud people of your bloodline.

Al-Omari says that social media and music are a means, not an end. “It’s always been about me. I have a different end goal: to have kids, who are well grown up, have an adventurous spirit and just disappear. If I could make my mark and pass the baton to someone else. I wish I could inspire many when it comes to putting Always have your money where it belongs and speak up for what you stand for.” When discussing the relationship with her mother, one of her goals becomes clear, which is to do good for her mother. Salma Al-Omari said, “Do you know how often I think about her? She told me yesterday that she had an appointment at the hospital. Then I immediately think about when she was no longer there. I would find that really difficult.”
