My name is Simone Taglietti. I am a 19 year old student from Italy. I am interested in the arts, the environment, and literature of the 1900s. My hobbies include writing poetry or essays, painting and studying. I'm attending the global governance course in Rome at the University of Tor Vergata. I chose this degree because of the multidisciplinary aspects it consists of. In my perspective, this program will give me the preparation that is necessary in order to succeed in the fields that I am interested in pursuing. I'm from Brescia and have spent most of my life in this multiethnic city getting acquainted with people from different places and with different backgrounds. In 2016 I travelled to California where i lived for one year on a study exchange program. This experience helped me in becoming a more open minded person and expanding my knowledge in order to overcome insecurities.
