Class Year:

Hi, I'm Alessandro Marangelli '24 a freshman from the South of Italy. I grew up in Rome with my four siblings and I attended Liceo Artistico Caravillani before passing the selections for UWC. At UWC Costa Rica I finished my last two years of high school and learnt English and Spanish at an academic level. At UWC Costa Rica I learned about new cultures and how to respect them, perspectives about the world, and how to deconstruct our biases. This was achieved through the IB diploma but mostly thanks to his peers coming from 80 different countries. It is for this reason that he is planning to double major in Anthropology, Environmental Studies, and possibly minoring in Global Studies. My passion for these fields was drawn by my love for nature where I also find peace of mind but mostly because I want to work to reach sustainability on an environmental and anthropological level.

Ciao, mi chiamo Alessandro Marangelli '24 e sono un primo anno nato nel sud d'Italia ma cresciuto a Roma con mia sorella e i miei tre fratelli. A Roma ho frequentato il Liceo Artistico Caravillani prima di passare le selezioni per i Collegi del Mondo Unito. Presso UWC Costa Rica ho terminato gli ultimi due anni di liceo ed ha imparato inglese e spagnolo a livello accademico ed ho imparato circa nuove culture e come rispettarle, prospettive riguardo il mondo, e come decostruire i nostri pregiudizi. Questo è stato raggiunto attraverso lo studio del diploma BI ma soprattutto grazie ai miei amic* provenienti da 80 paesi diversi. È per questo motivo che sto cercando di laurearmi in Antropologia e Studi Ambientali. La mia passione per questi campi è stata guidata dal mio amore per la natura, dove trovo anche pace interiore, ma maggiormente perché vorrei lavorare per il raggiungimento della sostenibilità sia nel campo ambientale che antropologico.
