I want freedom

“There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.”
― Elie Wiesel


Like many others, I wish to be free in my choice, opinion and speech. Our modern society reached a lot throughout history from slavery to gay marriage. And I am very proud of that!

I have to admit that I live in a great country called Germany. With all its difficulties I really love this place, laws, culture and history. Even though my heart is in eastern countries, my comfort zone is in Germany. Thanks to this country I achieved what I have now and I constantly develop my personality.

Originally I am from Russia – a different, yet, amazing, cold country. My home, my family, my childhood, very important period was in Russia. It is my home because my parents live there, and with their help, I am where I am now, in Europe.

There are many stereotypes, jokes, prejudice about Russia and its people. Of course, there is a reason for that and from some extent it is true. I like Russia because, again, it is my home, my roots, my family. But I do not like living there. That is why I moved to Germany.

This feeling when you cannot change anything when you are nothing and powerless. When without money you are like an object and just have to live your life as it is. To say shortly, I always felt lonely there and limited in my opportunities. Thanks to free education in Germany I have honoured a chance to move there to study and expand my opportunities to the full.

I made my choice because I want freedom, equality, diversity, and respect. In the 21st century, everybody has a right to live life to the fullest and have a choice. Freedom – like temptation, hard to achieve, but once you get it, you never want to lose it.
