Hey, I'm Malika and I am 18 years old. I'm from Germany but moved to Dubai when I was 3 years old and have lived there ever since (and loving it). My hobbies include tennis, horse riding and swimming and I have a strong passion for music but can sadly not play any instruments. I went to an English school following the British curriculum and learnt both French and Arabic but am unfortunately not that good in them. Over the summer holidays I visit my family in Germany and I usually gather a lot of work experience by waitressing or working in a hospital for example. I have been lucky enough to grow up with a lot of different cultures as I travel a lot and 80% of the UAEs population are expatriates. This lead me wanting to study Global Governance and pursue the idea of facing economic challenges from an international/global perspective and always being open minded as I think that is important. I'm also really excited that I am studying in Rome as I have not been there and I want to get out of my comfort zone. Thanks for reading :).
