I suppose I see my perspective on European and political issues being largely shaped by my experience of living in Wales so it was the key aspect of my identity that tells people who I am in this context.
I think online I am on a far more equal footing than offline. This method of communication is the easiest for me and people judge you by what you write (and how you write perhaps). Online, my contribution is as valid and worthwhile as the next person, which is far from the case irl. I'm the same person online but with fewer obstacles in my way.
Mine came from my favourite book, To Kill A Mockingbird and has been my motto ever since I read it. The book itself translates it as 'from mud to the stars' although I understand that more literally the latin means through adversity to the stars, or similar.
I think it became my motto at the time because I needed something to believe in (seeing as religion/faith or lack thereof is a hot topic at the moment!)

If you don't mind my saying so it's a very appropriate signature. In bocca al lupo for your thesis!
