Hi! My name is Margarita and I am 19 years old. I grew up in a small town in Eastern part of Latvia which was always a very calm place without much of a cultural diversity. It made me wonder about the world outside of its borders. I have always loved history and been quite good at learning different languages. Throughout the years I have had many different hobbies, but for me nothing can be compared with playing piano which is my favorite thing to do. Two years ago I was an exchange student in Brazil. This experience took a great part in defining who I am today and I could not be more thankful about it. I met many different people, lived in a very healthy host family and had friends, classmates from very poor, even dangerous neighborhoods. It influenced me a lot, because it made me understand that I was very privileged to have these opportunities to travel, have quality education and live in a safe and calm place. Someday I want to be able to help people, change something that should not even be an existing problem in the modern world like; lack of access to education or poverty. That is exactly why I chose Global Governance and I hope to learn how to handle and solve different problems from diverse perspectives.
