«…At some point you discover the true meaning of your life. You live not only for yourself and your relatives, but for tens, hundreds other people, with whom you share Motherland and the whole World. And it is not only a burden of a great responsibility, no, it is an inspiration to live and create.
Although, I am of Ukrainian ancestry, I have started to position myself as a citizen of the world lately. We have to stand together regardless of national borders and languages of communication. All of us have dreams, achievements, goals and, what is more important, rights. I really do feel the urge, power, and willingness to fight against the human rights violation. I want to tell people about their freedom and teach them how to protect themselves on a juridical level.
Unfortunately, nowadays there are many people envious of western democracy. I believe that the time to act has come and we have to make our Ukraine a developed and powerful state.
Stop thinking that the country owes something to you! Remember what John F Kennedy said: “ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.»
