I joined the Estonian Patriotic Movement when I was 16, and I was soon elected to the management board. I was one of the founders of the Estonian Conservative People’s Party and the patriotic youth movement “Sinine Äratus” (“Blue Awakening”) in 2012. I have been the Chairman of “Sinine Äratus” and a member of the Board of the Estonian Conservative People’s Party for a long time.
