Julieta Lechini

Julieta is passionate about singing, social service, and justice. She attended UWC Robert Bosch College, where she learned more about the topics that she is involved in as cultural diversity, gender inequality, and environmentalism. Her goals for the year are to learn as much as possible from those little things in life and the people surrounding her, as well as to be able to make the best out of the experience. There is a quote that in Spanish says “Yo soy yo y mis circunstancias” (I am myself and my circumstances) and explains so well how one is itself when the unexpected surroundings are accepted. She wants to take this with her to Senegal to make part of herself all that is unknown to her today!

Desde Uruguay a Senegal, pensamientos en el Super

Cada tanto me viene a la mente las historias que mis padres y abuelos me solían contar sobre mi país. Un Uruguay donde las puertas permanecían abiertas, donde se podía comprar una bolsa de caramelos por 1 peso y donde todxs eran bienvenidxs a tomar mate a cualquier momento del día. La vida pasaba más…

From Uruguay to Senegal, a shared history

I often remember the stories that my grandparents and parents used to tell me about my country. An Uruguay where you could leave doors open, where you could buy a bag of sweets for 20cents and where people are welcome to eat or drink mate whenever they feel like. The path of life was slower,…

Una -no tan- carta a mi misma

Mi vida parece cambiar drásticamente de un momento a otro. Donde estoy y que hago. Y hasta quien soy. Las cartas para uno mismo deberían ser leídas por uno luego de un tiempo, para ver cambios y enorgullecerse o no de ellos. Para presentarme y para luego recordarme, decidí escrbir una y compartirla con ustedes….

A -not so- letter to myself

My life seems to change suddenly from a moment to another. Where I am and what I do. And so am I. Letters to yourself are supposed to be read by you some time later in life, to see those changes and be proud –or not- of whom you are now. My name is Julieta…
