Here are listed all members that have contributed to The Global Observer. They created it with courage, and made it live everyday by the strength of friendship and hope. We owe this beautiful project to them, few persons of another time. Today, we multiplied in number, but we still bear in mind the values they draw for this blog.

“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.
P.s. 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 on the blog or contact me privately.
“No legacy is so rich as honesty”
My name is Sadeen Qardan. I am from the capital city in Jordan; Amman. I am a first-year student in Global Governance hoping to pursue a career in either social justice or humanitarian aid. I am strongly driven by my passion to do things the ethical way, to be true to my goals, and to implement change where change is needed.
“A lack of passion can do more harm than simple inexperience.”
My name is Selene Grube, I´m 21 years old and from Stuttgart, Germany. My main passions are traveling and learning about new cultures. Professionally I have a strong interest in intercultural understandings and with a special focus on migration. Global Governance is giving me the opportunity to learn more about these interests and our developing world.
“If you do not like today’s world, make tomorrows.”
My name is Simon and I am from Germany. I always like to take on a new adventure, which is why I wanted to come to Global Governance and the Global Observer in the first place. I want to see the world and be a part of all the changes around us.
“You can either spend your time building borders or crossing them, and I chose the latter.”
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 to be a part of a more global picture which is why I chose Global Governance. I like exploring art history, languages, and breaking stereotypes.
“What interests me is living and dying for what one loves.”
What I love is telling stories about beauty, about courage, about fear. I hope you can appreciate them and then write your own ones.
“I am a human being, nothing human is strange to me”
I’m Luca from Sardinia and I’m nineteen years old. Daydreamer, curious and fiercely passionate about everything new and creative, I spend my life always thinking what I can improve in order to make the world around me a happier place to live in: that’s the reason of my ambitiousness. About my interests, the two biggest passions are traveling and cooking: the way to get to know new people and cultures is always through the stomach, right? I am now looking forward to welcoming all of you on our big banquet: bring and share your best food!
” Try and leave this world a little better than you found it, and when your turn comes to die, you can die happy in feeling that at any rate, you have not wasted your time but have done your best.”
Curious, eclectic, enthusiastic and doomed to love philosophy for the rest of my life, I spend most of my days overthinking and writing down my thoughts, trying to tidy them up. By the way, I can also find the time for the most disparate activities: during my life I’ve been indeed a boy-scout, a football referee, the social media manager for the school paper, and I’m still running a philosophical humorous page on Instagram. I think that this blog is the perfect place for me to express myself and spread my creativity.
“Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me.”
Energy, determination and happiness are three simple words that can describe me. I love travelling and discover new things. Art is the main inspiration of my life and I have fear of everything. I can speak spanish, french and english. I love helping people and the protection of environment is my biggest awareness.
” In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks”
I have been looking for my place in the world for so long, fascinated by so many things at a time and I think I’m still looking for my thing. Anyway, what surely makes me the most inspired is Nature, which I feel very connected with and find amazingly healing. I love writing and I feel so excited about the beginning of this new adventure with The Global Observer!
“Life is getting your hands dirty with ink and filling in the blank space of the soul with words”
I was born in September 1999, in Rome. Here I attended the Liceo Classico, where I improved my passion for writing and journalism. To describe myself I would use three words: stubborn, dreamer and curious. Books, art and traveling are the keywords of my life.
“Be yourself, everyone else is already taken”
You can always find me picking up fruits all over the world and eating ice cream.

“Every man’s life represents a road towards himself” –
I was born in the triple border of Brazil with Paraguay and Argentina, in 1996. Since childhood, I realized that the world we live in is not the same for everyone. Therefore, I am currently in the first year of the B.A. in Global Governance in the University of Rome Tor Vergata to learn how we can change this scenario to provide an environment where individuals can be themselves without fear and with similar opportunities. Personally, I believe we are here to grow and be useful to our community. I hope to spend my life acting to leave this place better than it was when I arrived. Feel free to contact me.
“Every day, every week, every month and every year of my life, my hero is always ten years away.”
My name is Andrea. I think it doesn’t matter where I am from and what my background is. I would like to live in a world where people judge an opinion or an idea regardless of who said it. I’m a freethinker who just likes wondering which doesn’t necessarily mean that I’m lost. I hope to be understood, but I don’t expect to be followed. I rely on criticism to grow. So, If you disagree with me about something, just let me know and you will help me more than others would do.

“Never settle for less than the best”
“I aspire to inspire before I expire.”
I am Flaminia and I support art in all its forms. I love photography and I consider it as the strongest language in the world. In fact, it has no boundaries: it speaks to everyone in the same way.
“It only seems impossible until it’s done.”
Hi! My name is Martina Rolli and I’m 19 years old.
I’m Italian but I was born and raised in Frankfurt, Germany.
Four years ago I moved to Geneva, Switzerland where I finished High School.
While living abroad I got the chance to meet many people from different countries, I also discovered my passion for languages and writing. That’s one of the main reasons why I chose to become a member of the Global Observer blog!
