What was the most curious thing you have seen until today?
I recently made a trip to a country in the Middle East, which gave me a truly passionate cultural experience. What I liked the most in this country was the tolerance with which people accept different religions, the peaceful coexistence between mosques and catholic churches. The curious way that people look at you, the curiosity to know where you come from and the reason why you are there. One of the most intriguing things of this trip was to hear the songs of mosques echoing night and day through the loudspeakers. I really enjoyed the mysterious and "hypnotizing" tone with which they spread throughout the entire city.
How would you like to see the world in 10 years?
In 10 years, I would like the World to be more human, more egalitarian and fairer. I’d like geopolitical conflicts and tensions between different religions and ethnicities to come to an end. I wish measures would be taken to protect the environment globally and that all countries were committed to preserving our ecosystem, ensuring sustainability and the future of next generations. Despite the innumerable benefits that technology has brought to the Modern Era, I would like to see World not losing the most important: human relations, that is the essence.
A trait you enjoy in other people?
Altruism and generosity are some of the characteristics that I appreciate in others. I also admire people who can feel gratitude for what they have, without judging others and are able to cultivate the joy of living and appreciate the moment. I believe people with strong resilience, who can overcome the challenges that life brings to them inspiring.
