“I dream of social changes in a sustainable way. For this, I see myself as path guide for future generations and as an example for making social contributions at this teenage. I want to make social transformation by the active participation of child, youths and all peoples. So, I see myself as a social change-maker and innovator in five years,” he expressed.
