“Europe would look like a place where differences are mainained and celebrated, but understood and accepted, also within us Europeans.”

Marta, 24, Italy

What makes you a European? And how does that show?

What makes me a European is my passport. And the fact that I was ‘lucky’ and was born in the ‘right’ part of the world.
I mean, I am grateful I was born here (I donot wish I was born somewhere else). However, I see how people are fed with this idea of being born on the ‘right’ side.
The fact that I am European is shown by the benefits I have. Those benefits are exclusive and exploited, also.

What would Europe in your imagination be / look like?

Europe would look like a place where differences are mainained and celebrated, but understood and accepted, also within us Europeans.
