RUNNING HEADER: REFLECTING ON GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP 2 Reflecting on Personal Identity and Global Citizenship With 7.4 Billion people on the planet, technology changes and globalization trends, people tend to be more open to world, and that is when global “Global Citizenship” is mentioned. But what is “Global Citizenship”? “Global citizenship is defined as awareness, caring, and embracing cultural diversity while promoting social justice and sustainability, coupled with a sense of responsibility to act” (Reysen & Katzarska-Miller, 2013, p. 858). With the continues change of society and new ways of life people are more open to crossing cultures than in any other time period in the video "Global education serves to equip people to all live together as one in this world." (Studio12TV, 2012). In this paper, I will demonstrate the importance of educating others on global citizenship and how it influenced me and formed my personal identity pertaining to: intergroup empathy, valuing diversity, social justice, environmental sustainability, intergroup helping, and the level of responsibility to act for the betterment of this world. In the context I will give two personal examples out of my life to reflect the influence of global citizenship on my personal development. In addition, I will analyze how general education influenced me to become a global citizen.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
