I like dreaming, smiling, dancing, talking, writing, reading, learning, getting new experience, traveling and going on programs for students to meet other people and their cultures. My free time is time for me, my family and friends. The world is beautiful place and there is something for everybody, you just need to be ready to use right opportunity. I adapted one of Nietzsches quotes to myself - Happiness of humans is: I will. :)
