Dasha, 18, Minsk, working as a shop-assistantI finished doing a make-up artist course, and now I want to take up a hairdresser’s course and learn to design clothes - to make people and the world more beautiful. I want to earn money, to buy a turntable and make my own home studio. I would like to travel. I am looking for myself now. We have this life to explore all the corners of the world and find ourselves, rather than to stay at one place thinking how bad everything is and how tired we are of Lukashenko. I do not care about it all. I want to find someone to love, to travel together, make a lot of children. And I would not want them to see this darkness that surrounds us. I want people not to ignore their lives because of uncertainty, without even trying to change something, not to give up but keep moving towards their goals.
