Thank you so much for having this event. My name is Prem. I am a sophomore student studying History. And, my question is about this idea of cosmic or global identity. I think its no secret that many of us here, no matter where we came from before this, we now have a certain level of privilege for being at a place like Columbia. And I think, I am confused as to whether this notion of a global or cosmic identity almost is predicated on a sense of privilege, and that certain people in this world don't necessarily have the privilege like being able to look beyond their most immediate surroundings. Whether it is because of discrimination, racism, sexism and so on. So how can we as people, that maybe do have more privilege, leverage that to make that global identity mean something more than us talking about it here?
