Name: raquel ribeiro

Years: 27
Ocupation: biologist

Which do you think is the main problem that affects the world?
I think that, globally, the main problem that the world is facing nowadays is the lack of understanding between the orient (Muslim) and occident world. I really think that both “worlds” are very self-centred and that both think of them selves as owner of the true. From my point of view, the occident world as a very arrogant and paternalist attitude toward the Muslim world and in stet of listen to what they have to say they simply try to force their opinion. And since both of them have quite amount of power the conflicts are inevitable. I really think that the occident is facing a value crisis and this result in many problems in the occident world and its relations with the rest of the world.

How can it be solved?
I don’t know. I think that education is one of the keys to the solution. And communication for sure is it too. But since, in my point of view, is a problem of attitude it was to be changed with time and patience and, sorry about the cliché, but in the children rests our hope and so they should be educated as thinking beings and not manipulated in any way.

What can you do to collaborate in its solution?
Being tolerant and trying to listen to other opinions. I’m a bit pessimist about how can I make a difference and probably that’s one thing in the occidental attitude that must be changed…

Which do you think is the main problem that affects you region or environment?
All Europe, and particularly Portugal, is facing a social problem. There is no enought employment for everyone and the young are very desmotivated and afraid of the future.

How can it be solved?
I think that the politics have to chage. I’m not much into politics but i believe that the solution has to be political.

What can you do to collaborate in its solution?
I don't see how can I help beside of voting in someone that I believe that could make a change.

Are you happy in live? Why?
I think that I can say that I'm happy. Because I’m satisfied in fields that I think that are crucial to happiness: the money that I earn to survive comes from something that I like to do, and at the moment I’ve a boyfriend who really makes me happy.

How could you be happier?
Probably if I had more stability in my financial life. And if I could see a harmonious future for the world, ‘cause i’m happy living the present but if I start thinking about the future i immediatly get the blues.

Which do you think is the secret of happiness?
Knowing yourself and what you need to be happy and them don't letting anyone standing in your way toward happiness.

Congratulations for this project!! I think that if there were more people like you in the world this would be a better place to live!! Hope you can learn a lot and that you can transmit you knowledge to the rest of us, the ignorant mortals
Best wishes e que te vaya bien!! Besos
