This book of 10 stories from my life came about as part of my homework during my first year at the University of Applied Psychology. In it I describe many events in my life – events I can look back at with pride. I first shared these stories among our student group. To my surprise, my colleagues liked them very much and were inspired by them. My supervisor, Marina Smirnova, was so impressed by them she suggested publishing this little book that you are holding in front of you right now.
