Personal valuesI highly appreciate freedom as a real-life possibility to control one's own life and to be responsible for it. For me it is important that everyone should be provided with conditions for free decision-making and in my opinion, it is a proper thing that I should contribute to their provision and maintenance.
I highly respect politicians and statesmen such as Winston Churchill, Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher. In general, I appreciate all people who managed to overcome obstacles, difficulties or adversities in their lives.
HobbiesBall games regardless of the ball size (basketball, volleyball, handball, tennis, golf, etc).
I like theatre, fine arts and music.
