On European Students For Liberty: “I am very excited to be part of European Students For Liberty and I firmly believe ESFL will become an alternative platform for young, liberty-minded people from all over Europe, which will help and facilitate the ones, who are willing to learn and spread the unconventional, youthfully radical message of liberty.”
