Soufeina engages in a very active exchange with persons who comment on her works. She receives some negative comments as well, mainly regarding Islam, but she answers them with precise and disarmingly honest replies. Her hatemailers run out of steam quickly. She is a great asset for creating intercultural understanding in Europe, something which is much needed in these times.

Soufeina has had some well-received exhibitions in Germany (do a search on Youtube). I would love to see an exhibition of her works also sometime here in Finland. Her works radiate poised calm and joyfulness.
