Estonia is an unspeakably good, unique place for living and bringing up children. If we try a little more, we can make it into the most family-friendly country with the best living environment. I want my children to feel the same when they grow up. I wish that after getting experience, skills and an open broad outlook on life in the world, they would still see that Estonia has all the most important things for them. I would like to contribute to this, and to the surviving of Estonia.
