This story features the personal fight of Salma (16), a young Belgian woman of Moroccan origin, who in just four years became the national boxing champion of Belgium in her category. Salma faces every day a multiple fight that she is winning little by little. She is gaining the respect from her teammates in a sport dominated by men. She is banishing the stigma that condemns Belgians of foreign origin to racism and institutional discrimination. And, finally, she has achieved a sporting success in a surprising short time.
Salma represents the fight against discrimination and stigmatization in Belgium; as Belgian authorities, in an attempt to finish with the image of "cradle of international jihadism", opted for heavy-handed policies to be implemented in working class neighbourhoods of the city (e.g.Molenbeek).
Following the terrorist attacks in Brussels, they increased the police presence, conducted raids on sports and social clubs and used violence against groups of adolescents in these areas. On the contrary, nothing was made to solve the underlying problems that affect these communities (high unemployment rate, lack of opportunities and institutional abandonment) and that encouraged -together with other reasons- several young people to travel to Syria in a process of radicalisation. In response to this situation, the club where she trains - BBA- promotes the "vivre-ensemble" (social coexistence) through the respect, self-confidence, tolerance and discipline that inculcates to young people like Salma.
