Born and raised in multicultural Berlin-Kreuzberg, as the son of parents from East-Berlin and West-Germany, I am a child of the reunification. Uniting Europe in its diversity and connecting to our brothers and sisters beyond its constructed borders is the quintessence of my very existence. Overcoming prejudices and breaking down barriers through exchange and cooperation build the core of my social activism. Only together we can effectively combat global warming, violent conflicts and exploitation. I am showing leadership by taking full advantage of my privileges to empower others to take action. My education based on critical thinking, global life experiences and love substantiate my drive to ignite the change.
The city passes me by in a vibrant blur, and I feel Shoreditch ebbing and flowing around me; the heartbeat of a city at night. We pause underneath a shop awning and he peers at Google Maps, his brow creasing as he ascertains our position. Looking at him, I feel that familiar drug-induced throb of effulgent affection in my chest. It becomes so intense I have to look away, look at anything else. He places his hand on my lower back and his touch is red hot through my coat. I nod, taking his arm and gazing out into the rain, watching people scatter. We cast off from the building like boats onto the open ocean; rocking against each other in our euphoric haze.
By Laura Donnelly , Health Correspondent. Medical staff should be instructed to "withhold information about the sex of the foetus" according to a draft resolution passed by a Council of Europe committee. The plan is an attempt to prevent parents "selectively aborting" foetuses — usually female — as means of 'choosing' the sex of their child. The practice has reached worrying proportions in some former Soviet states that are members of the Council. However, the recommendation covers all 47 member states, meaning all NHS midwives and doctors could be blocked from telling expectant parents whether they will have a boy or a girl.
The beauty of European women differs from the beauty of Asian women , for example. Though, it would be hard enough to distinguish American woman from European one because both types may have pale skin and dark or fair hair. The colors of eyes may be different. The temper of European women is rather mild.
