António de Araújo Barros Maia
Age 20 – Portugal
Im 20 years old, currently studying in the 2nd year of Sports Science in Covilhã, Portugal. From a very young age, I always dreamed with a world more united and in peace, where we could all feel members of a single family: the humanity.
This desire has awakened in me a commitment to go beyond my limits, my prejudices, my culture and religion, to welcome in my hearts everyone, whatever their skin color or religion is.
What does peace mean to me ??? a very big and important thing … an absolute priority in human existence and that is why I try to live as coherent as possible with those values that allow me to walk into the path of peace.
In this complicated world, perhaps we often have the feeling that nothing contributes to peace, instead it is often the small peace gestures that are realizing a new culture of peace.
