“I love argument, I love debate. I don't expect anyone just to sit there and agree with me.”
My name is Sara. Incurable optimist, curious of the human race, coffee and sarcasm lover. I strongly believe in serendipity. If you want to know more, please ask. ps. I make a perfectly respectable cheesecake – just in case you were wondering.
"From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs."
This is probably the only part where I am going to use the "I", because I strongly believe that the ideas and messages I try to convey should be independent and more important than the person behind them. I would love to be able to offer some food for thought, a different perspective or simply a pause for reflection while waiting for the bus. However, what I would appreciate most is to start a debate or a conversation in order to share opinions, thus do not hesitate to comment the blog or contact me privately.

Ciao! My name is Tanya and I am 19. Born in a country as diverse as India, I was introduced to multiculturalism at a very young age. However, it was not until I was selected to be an exchange student in France that my life changed completely. I realized that I do not want to be confined to a particular nationality but I want be a part of a more global picture which is why I chose Global Governance. I like exploring art history, languages, and breaking stereotypes.

Hello there! My name is Mariamawit or Maria for short, I am currently a third-year student of Global Governance at the University of Rome Tor Vergata, all the way from Ethiopia. This Blog presents itself as a great opportunity to show its readers how I view the world and express my ideas and thoughts on matters that concerns all of us, as we are living in a complex and ever-changing world. Moreover, I would like to focus on issues that are worth our time and attention, and that are often neglected. We live in a global village, where the concept of distance no longer exists as we are interconnected thanks to the digital era, which is an important factor I would like to take advantage of to exchange ideas, comments and opinions with the rest of the world. Thus, becoming one in our differences!

What I love is telling stories about beauty, about courage, about fear. I hope you can appreciate them and then write your own ones.
