1. What does global citizenship mean to you?

Global citizenship to me is an acknowledgment given tohuman beings as creatures of God. Being human in this world is based on shared needs, whether he/she is man or woman, black or white, poor or rich, literate or illiterate orlives in a developed or underdeveloped situation. I believe that every person should be known/respected by his/herown identities (cultural & social values) and should be equally considered/treated as part and parcel of the world, and when he/she is given the chance to contribute to it, should exercise it and claim it. Education plays an important rolein promoting it.

2. In what ways are you a global citizen?

a. By nature bestowed on me that I am a creature of Godin this world, I have the right to live in the world and in lightof God̓s will.

b. By my own acts to be a global citizen, like browsingthe Internet, obtaining global information online for free,using social media like Facebook, watching TV and reading.
