Why Slovenia? I'm in Costa Rica & I got selected for SCiM (student conference in Maribor). Conference topic: Voluntarity. People from all over the world sharing experiences + creating ideas. I need to get there.
I love to think as the world as one, same as John Lennon, and this is exactly what I feel when I’m surrounded by people I don´t know, different cultures, different personalities, different languages, but all communicative human beings.
I believe that being free to choose the way you want to live requires responsibility. Quoting Bob Dylan, “A hero is someone who understands the responsibility that comes with his freedom”. We are born as heroes but along the way people tend to forget how important and needed they are to the world, especially because they misunderstand what freedom is all about. True freedom’s responsibility makes us better people, it’s like, -making everything you desire without harming anyone on purpose-,may sound utopic but by knowing this you’ll also find inside yourself the empathy of wanting the rest of the world to have the courage of feeling exactly the same, free.
In SCiM I'll meet more people who already know that we are all heroes. We get together and spread this all over the world. From Maribor to the rest of our world.
