Achievements in life and work:

Working on Roma community for a long time I consider my professional success. Personally, apart from my son, the support of my friends I consider a success – these who can encourage me to further work, inspire me if needed and make me laugh.

Are you living your life the way you have always wanted to?

It depended on my age.  There was a time, for sure, I wanted to live blithely and only spend money.   The values and priorities of a human being change. Now I want to live satisfied and to satisfy my loved ones.

What are your plans for the future?

Short-term plans are simple. I would love to go somewhere for a real holiday, possibly abroad, to the seaside. Long-term plan is to achieve a success at work and fulfil chosen aims in life.

Life motto, credo, dreams...

I have no life motto or credo, but I have a wish  for my son to live in a safe, broad-minded county without hatred not knowing disdain and rejection only because he is a Romany.
