One Young World – Francesca Capuozzo

I believe that a better world is not an option but a duty which involves every single being. I work hard to accomplish this task in every aspect of life, by respecting my neighbour, by promoting differences, by supporting responsible consumption, by actively participating in the community, through politics, volunteering and youth gathering.

I try to change place every time I can, both during my studies, through different student mobility programs, and in my free time. Travelling is a way to explore new dimensions, different cultures, habits and get to know better ourselves.

With regard to changing the future, One Young World Summit will surely be the right place to share fresh and innovative ideas; however the real challenge will be how to realize them. I’ve been selected as a speaker for the session on the power of the media. I will focus the attention on the need to separate political power from the media, also through the institution of independent authorities responsible to ensure fair competition among operators and guarantee the fundamental rights of users. I really hope to represent at best the youth of my country and to make a positive contribution to the assembly.

    I like your ideals Francesca and I hope you will always be inspired to keep them. Its a hard world out there and can be especially hard on women, especially young women – (I know, I was young once!) – who have to prove themselves over and over… All the very best to you! Cabe Searle

    Thank you Cabe Searle for your words! My motto for this One Young World will be MIND THE GENERATION GAP! I will do my best to persuade young people never to give up! We are the future, but we need to start changing things right now! Dreams won’t come true if we don’t realize that NOW it’s time to build new ideals and strenghten them day by day. Women have some more obstacles to overcome, but if EQUALITY won’t be just a principle written down in Universal Charts and Declarations, things will get better!

    Francesca, your words attain a wisdom.There are young people who act with wisdom, and there are old people who act as old people. Congratulations.
    Yes, the future is in young people, and really in this times we need it.

    It is really encouraging to see how young people are involved nowadays. It is even more encouraging to see a young woman so involved in politic. We need more participation in politics and government . The vision that women bring on a variety of contemporary issue is going to be a significant factor in the next political future . My hope is that she will inspire and influence women’s leadership in public life.

    Brava Galatea (Francesca).

    I must say, WHYS has highlighted some very smart, eloquent, and may I add, very attractive young people? Gives me hope for the human race.

    I couldn’t help notice the heavy bias toward the young ladies. Didn’t anyone else notice? I hope this doesn’t mean that my gender is going under-represented! Is this to make up for the past?

    If my count is correct, WHYS has focused on 14 young people, only 4 of which are young men. Hmmm. Are all the guys playing videogames or furiously texting on Facebook?

    Francesca, you haven’t explained where you are from (Italy, I take it, but what part?), and you haven’t divulged what keeps you busy day after day.

    I thank you all for your comments! I’ll be glad to tell something more about myself!
    I was born 24 years ago and spent half of my life in Naples, my hometown and half in Modena, a city that boast many excellences famous around the World, from Ferrari in Maranello, to Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale, from Tortellini to Maserati and so on. My sponsor itself Grandi Salumifici Italiani is a leader in national and international food industry.
    I’m finishing my studies in Law, I am just back from Paris Sorbonne where I prepared my thesis on the margin of appreciation in the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights thanks to a scholarship won at University of Bologna. I’ve always been very interested into the field of human rights and wider into EU and International Policy. I’m studying to become a judge or a diplomat and I would like to achieve a significant position in an international institution, like the UN, EU, COE…
    Both in my studies and in my private life I always try to give my best, I set ambitious goals and work hard to achieve them. I come from a modest family where I grew up giving importance to values such as loyalty, honesty, respect, aware of the daily difficulties and ready to overcome them with my own strenght.
    I’ve reached a certain degree of openness and curiosity for everything that is “different” because of my passion for travel, satisfied by doing many different jobs, as waitress, babysitter, hostess, cleaning lady, etc. I learned quickly the weight of certain responsibilities, the value of money, the sacrifices needed to fulfill a wish, and I tried on my skin that not everybody enjoy the same rights as it should be. That is what I want to fight, inequality.

    Francesca your information about yourself is in the nick time. I suspected something like this but not so wide. To be a judge is to inhert Lex Romana.
    The law is fine in paper. But to interpret it that is another thing. Diplomatic, is a carrer that has more responsibility. To be the image of your country is quite hard because many times the picture is blurred by local facts. With your education you can achieve both goals.

    Your participation in this summit is important for me and reason of pride and complete sharing of your world view that I hope young people like you through can become better. The approach that in the past I and my generation we tried change society has resulted in thousands of rivulets and useless violence, and now I strongly believe that only young, with the help of people well outside the logical power, can build a better future for the human race. It’s ‘true when you say that your are humble origins, but noble for your greatness within, values that undoubtedly those who have preceded us transmitted in order to make us better. In you I see the goodness of your grandmother, the sweetness of your mother, the fighting spirit of your father, nice persons, like all our kinsfolk, that have always given without calculating counterpart.
    With great affection ..
    Guglielmo Mirabella
