Olivia: my most recent goosebump moment would have to be the reaction of Alexandria Ocasio Cortez upon winning a seat in the 14th Congressional District of New York. This is huge due to the fact that she is the youngest person ever that was elected into congress and she came from nothing, unlike a lot of US politicians these days.
Verdi's Opera “La Traviata”
Marta: my goosebump moment is the Prelude of the third act of “Traviata”, an opera by Giuseppe Verdi, a famous composer of Italy. I share a deep bond with this opera because my grandma always made me listen to it when I was a little girl. Every time the music starts playing I get chills. It is so beautiful, so passionate.

“Rolling in the Deep”
The song “Sign of the times”
Mariam: there are so many songs that give me goosebumps, but my first experience with such a song was “Sign of the times” by Harry Styles. The meaning for me is that even in the worst situation we need to be brave, stop crying and just do our best even at our worst! This song brings back so many memories and makes me feel good.
"10 years of Triumph"
Fred: my goosebump moment is the Emicida show “10 years of Triumph”. I feel so connected with it and it’s emotional for me because I’ve been following him for 10 years and we can see the evolution. It was as if I was there. If you are black, you feel more connected with it because he empowers us with his lyrics and his songs.

White shark attacks surfer
Claudio: my goosebump moment was a shark attack in the middle of a surfing contest in South Africa. A huge shark confronted Mick Fanning, who jumped off his surfboard and for 9 seconds you couldn’t see what was happening. That was the longest GoosebumpMoment I’ve ever had. Thank God Mick Fanning made it out 100% safe!
"Boots of Spanish Leather"
Kirsten: my goosebump moment is when I hear the lyrics of the Bob Dylan song “Boots of Spanish Leather”. This song is special to me because it’s about two people and one of them is leaving and I’ve lived away from my family for six years now so it always makes me think of them. I always listen to this song as my plane takes off and I get Goosebumps every single time.

The book "The Fountainhead"
Katya: my goosebump moment is not one moment; it’s a lot of emotional moments which I’ve gotten after reading one great book. It is “The Fountainhead” by Russian-American author Ayn Rand. The main hero, Howard Roark, was faced with different dilemmas in his life, but he didn’t lost himself because of it. He could stand up to the voices of the majority.

Taylor Swift's “Love Story”
Aubienne: my goosebump moment is Taylor Swift’s new lyric video of “Love Story”. Taylor has been a huge part of my childhood and listening to it after 10 years reminds me of a time when life was still simple and fun. The song also reminds me of my own personal battles and that I now try to speak my mind and not let myself feel small just to make others comfortable.
