Giulia Pasinato, 28 years old, from Italy, currently living in Brussels.

Your relation with JRS:

ESC volunteer as communication officer at JRS Europe.

If you had to say something that defines yourself, what would it be?

Helpful, sociable, curious, idealist (too much).

What values matter more in your life?

Social justice. I think that everyone has the right to follow their own dreams or life’s projects. I believe people should try to cooperate with each other to build a real welcoming society.

How do you want to contribute to your community?

I try to live every day in an extraordinary way. Every act has an impact on our environment. It is a hard challenge, but I try to reflect on my actions and my relationships with others, and to value each person because everyone has a different background.

What is the change that you want/wish to see in Europe?

I would like to see more humanity. Everything is based on economy and on making profit. If we stopped following the money, what would happen?

Why do you think the work of JRS is relevant today?

Because JRS strengthens the work of each partner. It supports them in an intercultural way. Through the voice of migrants, JRS’s staff and volunteers fight everyday for the rights of displaced people in the world.

How does your work/activity contribute to JRS mission?

I try to give importance to every story, every face. I try to talk about their stories through images, testimonies and collecting stories that we are not used to hear.

What does JRS mean to you?

JRS is like an ocean of people that believe in the humanity and fight for a better future. I am only a drop in this ocean, but we come together to form oceans.
