World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates

Being at the 15th World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates as personal assistant to Jody Williams was an amazing experience. I had the opportunity to know many Nobel Peace Laureates, persons who gave an important contribution to the advancement of humanity. They represent the giants of our recent history. Speaking with them, listening their stories, discovering what they did for the others and for us…All this changed my vision of the life. They are actually like us and we can be like them. Most of them faced challenges that were bigger than ours and they succeeded. They find a way. Their will changed their action, their action changed the world.
