Livia Malcangio’s Interview for Book Being Nobel To State President Josè Ramos-Horta, Nobel Peace Laureate

Who is your favorite Nobel Peace Prize winner?

There are so many. I would say Kailash Satyarthi. He has my greatest admiration. From the moment he finished university, he was getting married. He talked to his fiancé about what he wanted to do in his life. Not going to a bank or set up a business, but he wanted to dedicate himself in freeing children from slavery. His fiancé agreed and so from the age of 22 he has dedicated all his life to the cause of children who are slaved, imprisoned, and that requires an immense love and compassion. He has faced many threats, he was attacked, endured difficult times.
Of course there are many others who work silently and you hear about them only when they get the Nobel Peace Prize, for instance.
