About Alex Vinci

Alex Vinci writes for Global Citizen because she thinks ranting about the world is a valuable skill and she wants to be an advocate for those around the world without a voice. Otherwise she enjoys eating food and anxiously awaiting for the 4th season of House of Cards to be released.

Why Alex Vinci is a Global Citizen

I am a global citizen because I'm only 1 of 7 billion people living here. We may have drawn borders on land that separate us, but we are first and foremost born into this world, ergo, global citizens.
