"It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop."

- Confucius, Ancient Chinese philosopher

Dalí ten Hove

Editor, Writer

Born in Amsterdam, raised in France, Dalí is Diaforlife’s youngest contributor. He completed the later part of his primary education at an international school, a period during which he developed a profoundly cosmopolitan outlook on human life, mixed with keen interests in socio-economic and environmental issues. He describes himself as ‘essentially nothing more than progressivist’, for which he deems the ingredients to be social-liberalism (or social democracy), cosmopolitanism and environmentalism. He is also a fervent Animal Rights supporter. Currently a student of International Politics & Economics at King’s College London, his primordial aim is to become a capable political thinker to help bridge the gap between the conservative forces of the developed world and the social needs of the developing – in a sustainable manner.
