– « I was born in Russia, from a Russian mother and an Algerian father, I grew up in both countries. They call me « the chocolate girl » in Saint Petersburg and the «blond» in Oran ! »
– « We have three satellites at home in order to receive all the programs in French, Arabic and English. I watch French TV and my husband prefers Egyptian movies. »
