On Liberty: Liberty is the most important political value that everyone should embrace, regardless of their origins, colors, or levels of education. The fight for freedom is not just an intellectual deed, it also requires the heart and courage necessary to realize its goal.
On SFL: SFL is the hub for young leaders passionate about the ideas of liberty around the world to keep in touch, support, and motivate each other. To be sure, joining SFL is one of the most life-changing decisions to me.
