I cannot change the whole world by myself but I could start with my world. Don't judge me if I sound a bit proud but so far I feel like I've lived right. Everyone has a story, a passion, and goals but more often than not it all stays at "I'm too shy, I wish I was bolder". Don't give up. You have a purpose, and someone needs to hear your story.

Young people often do and learn something. They rarely put their best and make it until the finish line. They often feel stressed if a problem arises and the...

Thank God, 2014 has started well but in order to make better progress it is very important for me to review the year 2013; not to live in the past, but to understand it and use it to create a better future.

It started with so much optimism about lots of things I planned for myself but somehow t...
