If you want to teach something, weave it in the form of a story that everyone remembers. A good story can teach you something, while a remarkable story helps you write your own. In the world, where everything changes in the blink of an eye, I want to leave a legacy that remains unchanged.

I also believe myself to be an animal lover and feminist, and actively vocalise about their rights and issues.

The former US presidential candidate and ex-secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, compared the Russian military operation in Ukraine to the Soviet Union’s invasion of Afghanistan in 1979.
