What inspires you?

Would it be too trite if I say "life"? Like in "Moulin rouge" they sing "Love is a many splendid things" - the same for life! When you see child's smile, pregnant women, parents playing with babies, kissing couples, adults who hold their hands.. don't you feel happier? I do. And thus there are these moments when you realize that you've helped someone and made him a little bit happier. These moments inspire me.
And it also these moments when you realize that you've helped someone which inspire me as well.

Tell us about an issue that matters to you and how you became aware and involved.

Lots of issues. Human rights. Children and women abuse. Human trafficking. Child soldiers. Poverty. Inequity.
It all comes from understanding that people are equal. Why should some suffer from hunger and HIV only because born in poor countries?
I've watched a great number of documentaries and read articles about all this. And this year I was minister for development at youth model of G8 summit, must say I learnt a lot there and got even more concerned about these problems.

Share your perspectives on what makes a good leader.

A good leader shares common will and inspires everyone.

Do you think TakingITGlobal can help you achieve some of your goals? Have we already? Please tell us how.

I really do! I met interesting people here and I found out new point of view, and also after reading TIG blogs or discussion boards it came to me that TIG inspires people who want to change something in this world and who really can do this and make it better! Yes, everyone himself can start making the world better (and it will work, I'm sure) but together we are power and we do believe our children will live in a better place.
