Why do you want to be a citizen without borders?

I seems that you have the same idea, I really like how you frame it, people without borders. I have found really few people that understand that someone can get out of their cultural framework and not only adapt to a new one but embrace it. Funny enough many people complain about those who come from other countries and do not adapt, however they never acknowledge or welcome those who are in fact doing what they are requesting! That is why I tend to say I'm from nowhere, cause I feel I do not fit anymore into any cultural description. Borders are artificial, human created them, and this also quite matches with the latest discoveries from the genome project that are telling us that race is an artefact and that all humans are in fact one big family. It's nice having different cultures, but not when these are used as a mean to create separation and discrimination, which in my opinion is what is being happening so far. If any of this resonates with the group I'll be happy to join.

Introduction

Hi, my name is Carmen, I'm originally Catalan and I have been living 11 years in London and 2 years in Stockholm. This together with my contact with many people from many nationalities makes me say I'm from 'nowhere'.
