Faces of Change: The story of Christina Pappas

Not only negative things like a virus should be unable to recognize any borders or ethnicities but also in solutions, answers and initiatives there is no space for inequalities between any countries.

One of the most important facts to reduce inequalities between countries is to understand other customs, other habits and the most important point: other languages. To contribute with my humble grain of salt, I taught German classes to newly arrived immigrants in my little hometown in the south-west of Germany. Many people will think that by knowing the universal language English it will be enough but this is not true. Local languages are a fundamental tool to integrate better and understand other countries and traditions. In my humble opinion the learning of languages could be a very good strategy to reduce inequalities because they will make us feel equal.
