“My life is filled with the beauties of mixing with people of various backgrounds. And I learn something new all my life, every day. I learn how to put myself in someone else’s shoes, with a different background, with a different culture, habits and customs”, highlights Xhabir Deralla in CIVIL’s initiative “Make a difference, respect diversity”.
“I learn how to understand the suffering of another person, in order to help, I learn how to understand the happiness of another, in order to join that happiness.
Those are people who have different customs and cultures, speak differently, come from different places throughout history, in order to join together in a beautiful and rich community. In that community, everyone can learn from one another, receive and give something.
One who knows, finds out and learns about other people, communities and cultures is a free person. Such a person has more opportunities to overcome challenges, to achieve success, to remain at the heights of humanity”, said Deralla.
