About Arthur Jamo

Hailing from the "land of good people" aka Mozambique, I have always considered myself to be a citizen of the world. Trying to live up to that ideal is a challenge I don't intend on shirking from any time soon. When not writing articles for the Organization for World Peace, I tend to split my time through volunteer work, learning Spanish, ardently supporting Real Madrid and completing my degree in Political Science (concentration in International Relations).
