Claudia Pelagatti is a student, who is attending a M.Phil in Race, Ethnicity and Conflict at Trinity College in Dublin within the Department of Sociology. Originally from Rome in Italy, she graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Interpretation and Translation in 2013, and worked as a freelance translator. Because of her interest in human rights, she volunteered as a fundraiser in the past and took part in a charity trip, organized by the Council of Rome, to build two schools in Malawi. She also has a passion for make-up artistry and fashion and runs several blogs and a Youtube channel on the subject.

Because I am a Girl I ask… that every woman, despite where she lives, will have the same rights.

Because I am a Girl I believe… that women should not stop fighting for their rights.

Because I am a Girl I hope… that gender equality will be achieved.

Because I am a Girl I wonder… why there are differences in the world, and there is not enough media coverage on horrible things happening to women worldwide on a daily basis.

Because I am a Girl I dream… that in the future I will make a difference and raise more awareness to help women.

Because I am a Girl I remember… how inspiring my charity trip to Malawi and interacting with locals was for me, and how it made me realize I should not stop fighting for my ideals.

Because I am a Girl I like… that my new life here in Dublin is giving me many opportunities to interact with activists.

Because I am a Girl I dislike… the lack of support offered to women in certain areas of the world

Because I am a Girl I feel… satisfied with life when I help others

Because I am a Girl I celebrate… my family who gave me love and help by supporting my life choices.
