While living in foreign countries, I realized that my dream is to live, work and create in my homeland. I was always interested in what was happening in Lithuania, was celebrating Lithuanian holidays, and voting. I have exported extremely large quantities of Lithuanian chocolates and other goodies to various countries around the world. I have arranged trips to Lithuania for my foreign friends from all over the world to show them what a wonderful country we have. And the most important thing is that it should be wonderful for those who live here. I wish for Lithuania to be a great place to live for everyone regardless of nationality, race, age, gender, and orientation. By participating in the “Create Lithuania” program, I want to use my skills and experience to make meaningful changes on a national scale in my beloved Lithuania.
