GALEONI Flaminia

Italy

Hi! I’m Flaminia Galeoni, I was born in Rome on the 1st September 1999. I’ve just finished my five years experience at the classic high school, where I had the opportunity to better understand myself and who I want to become in my future. I’m very passionate about literature, arts, reading and writing. Another of my biggest interests is travelling and getting to know new cultures and habits, that’s why as soon as I discovered Global Governance I knew that it could have been the right place for me. In my future I would like to work in the international relationship area, to discover as much as I can about the current and future global issues.

HUMA Alessio

Romania

Hi there! My name is Alessio Huma. If you’re reading this description, it means that your mind has just acquired the awareness of the existence of some unknown person somewhere: me. Without the power of the Internet, maybe you would have never heard of me. That’s the power of globalisation: connection. I want to say just a few things to you. I think that the globalisation, by fastening all the processes of communication and connection between humans, is just showing us in a quicker way something inevitable: the world is way smaller than we could ever imagine, and every action that we do everyday, in a way or another, has some consequences in this world where we are living all together. Therefore, if we really want a better world for us and for the next generations, we have to start thinking critically of which is our place on this planet and how we can help the others in order to make everyone living better as a humankind. We’re connecting each other more and more as the day passes. We can’t pretend to ignore what happens around us anymore, because whether we like it or not, we’re part of it. Human connection, therefore, is the key to overcome the challenges that Globalisation is posing to us.

BIAGINI Noemy

Italy

Hi there!
I grew up in a family context that has always valued multiculturalism and that has engraved in my mind two important concepts: humility and acceptance.

After my High School graduation, I packed my bag and started a completely new adventure.
I decided to spend a year in London where I have been working, studying and volunteering but, most of all, looking inside my-self and trying to understand what I desire for my future.
Multidisciplinarity, inclusivity and openness are just some of the words that I would use to describe the BA in Global Governance.
I strongly believe that we are lucky to live in such a connected world and that we should take the best from this unique opportunity and, day by day, learn from each other.

MAHBOOB Ali

Pakistan

Hey, I am Ali Mahboob from Lahore, Pakistan. Tackling global issues in Model United Nations and studying international infrastructure in parliamentary debates, I have been a student of politics since the past four years.

I have always been fascinated by the diverse cultures and ethnicities that make up this world and been given an opportunity to live and be a part of such a global community is a privilege. To meet new people, learn different languages, and discover myself through the beauty that this world hides within itself is what I look forward to.I believe it is through being part of a learned community that one improves himself by relating and understanding this world through someone else’ eyes. It just not just allows you to open your mind and see beyond your own sphere of knowledge but also gives you the perspective of a greater world.

My curiosity for global governance derives from wanting to know how nations interconnectedly work in a dynamic at an international level and what are the stakeholders in order to sustain this equilibrium. I want to have a better understanding of the crises that the modern world faces and be aware of my role in making it a better one. I believe that elegantly sums up what we all are meant to do: leave this world better than which was given to us.

LOPUKHINA Arina

Russia

Hello! I am a foreign student from Moscow, Russia. While attending an international school in Israel, I have become especially passionate about such aspects of Global Politics as Human Rights and Conflict Mediation. I hope to expand my knowledge of those disciplines throughout the program and gain a better understanding of political, legal, and economic processes in the world. Also, I am interested in World History and getting acquainted with different cultures and languages. I believe that, in the globalized society, it is highly important to be open-minded about various backgrounds, that is why I am planning to continue improving my German and Hebrew, as well as start learning Italian.

CINAR Esra Selin

Turkey

Hey people! I am Esra from a beautiful island called Cyprus. Throughout my life, I have always been interested in the ambiguous sociological matters, notions of global matters and thus; simply humans. Plus, I am a nature, music and art lover, which I think are vital elements for humans that need to be present at all times. For these reasons, I have attended many workshops, conferences; volunteered at several NGO tasks and organization of festivals which taught me it is possible to have marvelous fun and gain valuable experiences that would help you significantly later on. That is exactly why I think Global Governance is the perfect fit for me and for my dreams of making a difference in the world, therefore, I am very proud and excited to start this journey.

GRAZIOSI Diletta

Italy

Hello everybody,
my name is Diletta, I’m 19 years old and I’m from Rome, Italy.
I’ve always been a curious girl, that asked plenty of questions and could never actually focus her attention on only one interest. My biggest passions have always been dancing, photography, reading and studying different languages, but recently I discovered how social topics such as feminism, gender equality and human rights in general really fascinated me.
Two years ago, in order to define my personal identity and my future goals, I decided to move to Canada for a year abroad.
It was there that I actually understood how much the world has in store for young people like me, that in this specific moment of the history have the opportunity to be heard.
This is the reason why Global Governance is the perfect path for me, not only in terms of subjects and academic goal, but mostly because of the environment of enthusiasm and reliance on the fact that our generation can actually have an impact on the world.
I feel blessed to have the opportunity to join such an amazing and stimulating course surrounded by interdisciplinarity and multiculturalism.

I Lived in Italy for a year attending a school in Pescara, to learn Italian and experience travelling and independence, as i knew i would like to attend a University in Italy one day.

DE NOVELLIS Elena

Italy

Hi everyone! I’m Elena De novellis I’m 19 years old and ready to explore what life had reserved for me. I believe that everything in life is an experience and -whether if its good or bad- it must be lived fully. I’ve just graduated in a scientific high school where I’ve studied for 5 years. During this years I changed very much; in the first few years I used to imagine my future self working with numbers, when right now I imagine myself in a future full of people to meet and to get to know, help them and to try to be helpful for the society in some way.
I chose the faculty of Global Governance as my new path to find my place in the world, to understand its mechanisms and to be able to do something good for it.

Italy

I’m also a musician, I studied violin for seven years and it’s been four years now since I started playing the drums. I see myself as a determined person who cherishes truth and justice and is not afraid to stand up for what is right, no matter the consequences: that’s why I am a feminist and environmentalist. Since I was a kid I never knew who I was going to be when I grew up or what my job was going to be, and I still don’t, however the only constant has been that I wanted to help people, because when I looked at the world I didn’t like what I saw, so now I’m here to change it. I’m very grateful for this course because, with its interdisciplinarity and diversity of subjects, I think it will give me the opportunity to reach a better understanding of global issues and the means to face them in the best way possible.

I started flying around Europe and learning new languages both at school and abroad. I was lucky to receive a 6-months scholarship to study in Canada in 2018 and once I came back I understood that what I really wanted to do in life was connecting cultures and different people.

I believe that thanks to Global Governance I will be able to pursue my goal and better understand how the 21st century world really works.

I have loved it since I was little because of my mother and my grandmother, and there is nothing that makes me feel better than going all over the world. In fact, some of my dreams are to go on a Safari in Africa and look for the norther lights in Lapland. I also love to go to art exhibitions because I think that the emotions that a painting or a sculpture arouses in you are like no other. I already speak four languages (Italian, English, French and Spanish) but I would really love to learn more and more to be the more opened to different cultures as possible. I realized how important the world issues were to me by participating at IMUN (Italian Model United Nations).

FOKINA Evelina

Russia

Since childhood, I have a strict sense of justice, but I understand that this feeling is only the basis of the ground, on which many more lawyers of lessons that I have to go through will be superimposed.

KANTEEVA Albina

RussiaHi everyone! I’m Albina and I come from a city, named Stavropol, in south of Russia, a country where cohexist different nationalities. Even within my family itself I experienced this pluralism, being half tatarian and half ossetian while raised in russian culture: this made me realize how various the cultural references can be and how vital is to respect each other’s values. Looking for new experience outside my comfort zone, after my high school diploma, I moved to Germany and I have lived there for 6 years, learning the language and studying at the law school… it has been an challenging experience, getting familiar with a new culture… but I understood as well that I want to work, in the future, in international environments.

Italy

Hi everyone! My name is Chiara, I’m 19 years old and I live in Rome, Italy. I have a European body and an international soul: I was born in Germany, I inherited the French nationality from my father and I live in Italy. My international vocation comes from my travels all around the world and my six-months stay in Canada back in 2018/2019 for an exchange program. There I’ve understood my passion to explore the world and to get to know people from different countries and cultures. Therefore, I decided to make of this my long-time job! Being an international student, I felt for the first time an outsider and I believe this aspect made me more open minded and it gave me the occasion to shape my own personality: by getting to know people from different cultures, I got to know myself better too!

LIBRANTI Simone

Hi everyone, I’m Simone and I’m from Rome. Though my education has been mainly focused on humanities, I had the opportunity to take some extra scientific courses, and I’m so grateful for that.

I studied four years of International Relations and now I’m following my study career in Global Governance at the University of Tor Vergata. I’ve always been fascinated by the International discussions and the analyses of global phenomena. In our globalized world, local discussions are now easily spread everywhere, which results in external support and it gives voice to those who were once unseen, creating a synergy in problem-solving. I expect to use this opportunity also to export my cultural knowledge and experiences, to bring light about Brazil but always open to exchange experiences with my Global Governance community.

I like travelling, learning languages, reading, enjoying natural landscapes and discovering the art hidden into old towns. I’ve spent my fourth year of High School in China as an exchange student, there I’ve had the great opportunity to experience the cultural gap and the adaptation, as well as being hosted by a Chinese family, meet lots of people, enjoy the culture and obviously learn Chinese. This journey led me to understand a lot from myself, enough on what I will be doing and something about this multicultural huge planet we live on.

Russia

I’m Ekaterina but my short name is Katya, so please call me that. I come from St.Petersburg, Russia, which means I’m always ready to discuss Dostoevsky’s novels 🙂 When I’m not busy with daily routine, I always try to enjoy life and have a good time. I like cooking (and eating too, so studying in Italy will also be a true gastronomic journey). I like cinema and going to the movies (almost as much as I like staying home and watching Netflix). I also like animals a lot, I’m a proud mom of two beautiful dogs. On a more serious note though, the topics I’m dedicated to the most are women’s rights and ecological problems. I hope to continue learning about the world, find out more what I can do to fight gender inequality, as well as implementing a more eco-friendly lifestyle.

PICCIOTTI Virginia

Italy

Hi! I’m Virginia. Since I’m a curious person I tend to live my life as a continuos discovery. This usually leads to people thinking I’m kinda weird, but I’d hate to be considered any different. In my spare time I like reading and writing about things i consider being worth notice but sometimes actually are not. I like being in the open air and if I could I’d be riding my bike to everywhere in the city. However, if there is something I really love, it would be to travel and, while doing so, discover new cultures and new ways to see life and to face different situations.

POTT Michelle Aimée

RIZZO Francesca Sofia

ItalyHi! I’m Francesca Sofia, or just Sofia to my friends. I was born in Rome in 1999, but pieces of my heart are scattered in a multitude of places, and in all of them I feel at home. I love to travel and to discover different facets of humanity, from the closest to the most dissimilar. One of the many lessons that the Latin culture has taught me is the one expressed by the sentence ”Homo sum, humani nihil a me alienum puto”. I’m very excited to become part of the GG family for a variety of reasons: the international scope, the multidisciplinary, the embracement of diversity as richness. My interest in human rights, international cooperation, sustainable development, and preservation of cultural heritage, could not have led me to a better BA than this! When I’m not overthinking and daydreaming, I love to immerse myself in art, in all of its forms, including awkwardly trying to learn to play the bass guitar. You may also find me running, meditating, writing, eating vegetarian dishes, or learning a new language.

ROBINSON Alex Spencer

Jamaica

My name is Alex, I was born and raised on the tropical island of Jamaica, but I recently relocated and now live in the historic and beautiful city of Rome. I’ve had such an awesome experience immersing myself into the rich culture of Italy, coming from such a widely different culture it’s been amazing, from the food, to the people and exploring the night life of the city I was able to see even more of its true beauty, simply put – I fell in love with Rome. My philosophy is that I can achieve anything I set my mind to – with hard work and determination. I am a firm believer in T.E.A.M, because for me the acronym stands for Together Everyone Achieves More! I love politics; I’m an avid reader, who enjoys many different genres of music.

Hi! My name is Ancuta Raluca and I’m a proud GG1 student. I was born in Romania but moved to Italy when I was nine years old. I describe myself as an ambitious and hard-working person who is capable of anything in order to achieve the desired results. I firmly believe in solidarity and I think that this is a trait which all the GG students and staff have in common. Also, I promote equality, justice, human and animal rights. I want to give the possibility to all people to make their voices heard! Furthermore, Global Governance represents an excellent opportunity for me and I want to prove the world that even when you come from nothing, you can still build your future! Moreover, I expect to grow mentally as a person, to improve my knowledge and to become friends with all of you. Oh, and I spend my free time writing poetry and reading all kinds of books.

SAFFIOTI Simona

Italy

Hi! My name is Simona and I’m from Rome. I am a nice but quite shy girl who loves music, movies and travelling. I have studied languages in High School so I can speak Italian, English,French and Spanish. With this language’s knowledge I have been able to travel and to interact with other people which gave me the opportunity to open my mind and to learn new things. I think that this process of learning new things will continue with this course in order to spread what I learn and to change something for the good!

SALVATORE Lorenzo

Italy

Hello, nice to meet you I’m Lorenzo and that’s a quick overview of who I am. I was born and raised in Aprilia, a town close to Rome, with passion for politics, football, literature and art. Well, I think the last one can sufficiently resume my personality. In fact I love to imagine things and try at all my best to realize my visions and draw them in the reality just like for a paint, for a project or also for a play. That’s what I want to do in my future as a job, to give visions and realize projects, I tried for the first time in smaller during the past year in my high school protesting and activating my schoolmates to claim a more active and independent role of the figure of the student inside the school. But in general what interests me most are social justice and green economy and sustainability. My goal is to enter inside the European institutions and a have an active role to realize that I think Global Governance can give the tools I need. In addition to the tools what’s really important is the mindset. Perseverance, resilience, self-confidence and challenge myself constantly represent what the sport gives to me and that’s for that and for the feelings I live that I practise football since I was 7. The mindset the sport gives to me is fundamental also off the pitch in school and in everyday life. Another aspect of me is the constant research for new stimulations, there is no better way to find new ideas than literature. I love read essays, biographies, the books that contain a lot of humanity. One of my favourite book is “Gli spiriti non dimenticano” written by Vittorio Zucconi. Love for humans and possibility to travel inside a completely new world it’s not only for literature but also for Art. One of the painter that I most like Paul Gauguin well represents what I love about art.


SAMARA Noor

Jordan

Hi everyone! My name is Noor, I’m Jordanian of Palestinian origins; two countries that are well known for their cultural richness. I usually occupy my free time with sightseeing, if not, you’ll probably find me somewhere reading a book and listening to music. Whenever inspiration strikes, I also like to write and draw. During the past few years I have decided to follow a new approach to life that consists of enriching my knowledge and expanding my horizons through experience. As a result, I have participated in several international forums, MUNs and meetings with prominent politicians. I chose Global Governance for its interdisciplinary course structure and its emphasis on multiculturalism and internationalism, which ensures that students have an inclusive outlook regarding different global challenges. I hope my following years at Tor Vergata will help me pave the way for a future where creating positive change is my full-time job.

SGRO Veronica

Italy

Hey everybody! I’m Veronica (Viky for international friends) from Rome and I was born in 2001. If you’re getting to know me, you’ll realise soon that I’m very cheerful and full of energy. In fact, I love doing new experiences and adventures and discovering new aspects of the world. Concerning my interests, my biggest passions are writing (I was the director of a student newspaper) and photography; both tools to express myself in the best way. I think Global Governance really fits me because I believe in the power of dialogue and diversity among different people, so that everyone of us can enrich the other with his/her personal baggage. Well, that’s all for now…

SPANACHE Ana Roxana

Romania

My name is Roxana and I’m 21 years old. I was born in a small town in Romania and came to Italy seven years ago.
Being part of these two realities, I become  more aware of how lucky I am, and how many possibilities I have had, and continue to have, everyday.
That is why I now want to give back and help those that are less fortunate than I am.

TURELLA Chiara

Italy

Hello everyone, my name is Chiara, I’m 18 years old and I’m from Rome, Italy. My biggest passions are dancing, reading and writing. I’ve always been a curious person, I usually ask questions about everything, especially about other cultures and this is why in 2018 I moved to Oregon (usa) where I’ve lived for a year and an half. Being so close with different people coming from different life scenarios and speaking different languages made me realized that I wanted to learn more about our world. My main interests about today’s world are topics like human rights, global warming, gender equality.
