Bilal was born in Spain. His family is of Arabic origin and he lives with them in Barceloneta. He is 17 years old and is one of the few young people in the project who completed their ESO studies and, in addition, studied a medium-level qualification (diploma) last year. He receives help from the Joan Salvador Gavina Foundation, and it was through them that he chose the sailing program within INSERsport. At first, he chose sailing because it was the only option that still had spots available, but he has now developed a strong passion for the sport.
