Dmytro is "Muse for Youth" project co-founder
- Why did you decide to create this project?
The project began as a promotional campaign for Vershki catering company but than it grew into another into little bit more than that.
All the project heroes, regardless of age (and this is from 30 to 70), have one same thing in their character - the desire to learn something new.
People who were over 60+ did not afraid to learn new things, to be modern and innovative despite of all the traditions and certain well-established concepts and other post soviet people opinion. Perhaps this is due to the circle of communication or the lack of conservatism.
We do not care about who this person is, it can be both a teacher who communicates with students, and an accountant who does not care about her age and lives full interesting life. And this deserves attention, because the quality of our life is in our hands - and these people are really good example. Therefore, such people are an example of how to live a happy life despite of any conditionality.
The pensioner...some people think that it is the end, but here we see another stories. And we wanted to show that, because the age or lack of money or other excuses is not a sentence, it's never too late to start, not at 20 or even 60.
- How did you choose your profession?
I did not want to choose a profession, I didn't want to choose only one activity, because life is my profession. For me, just to live and try new things is better.
I don't want to leave anything after I'm gone.
"We need to "waste" less and don't leave anything after ourselves, ... this isn't positive or negative it is just as it is".
- What are your plans for the future?
At the moment, I am engaged in what brings emotions important to me and this is the main thing.
I try to succeed in many ways - this is my advantage and disadvantage at the same time.
- Do you have any unrealized childhood dreams that you want to fulfil in nearest future?
The child is like a sponge that tries to absorb lots of things, but I'm still like that.
We are all slaves of our past, but we can change it, we have the right to do what we want. No need to fear your own desires, we are responsible for everything that happens to us. And and responsibility is the main thing.
I dreamed to be just a human being when I was a child.
