On Students For Liberty: ‘When I first encountered SFL, I found out that I am not a lonely believer in long forgotten ideals, but that there is a very much alive and vibrant movement of young people engaged in the struggle for a freer future. Being part of this movement has been both motivating and rewarding. As many before me had said, I joined SFL to be surrounded by people sharing my ideals, and I stayed for the incredible community these people form.’
