Share, support, volunteer, donate - it's time to CrowdChange Europe

I grew up at the other side of the iron curtain. Everything was limited.

Living life on my terms was not something I could do. My family's and my freedoms were conditional. We had no freedom of information, no freedom of choice, or freedom to travel.

Access to food was extremely limited in variety and accessibility. My family had to cue in lines for hours, to buy products such as as bananas, oranges or mandarins. Everyday we would get the exact same amount of products, no variation allowed.

Life was "happy," but we knew we were not free. We had no real freedoms.

A huge change took place in my life once the iron curtain fell. My family and I went to visit Austria. After crossing the border, our first stop was in a super market. I will never forget walking into that market. Seeing the immense variety of food available, was unbelievable. Various yoghurt flavours? Different brands of milk? Buying as much food as you wanted? AMAZING and unheard of for us!

It all felt like a dream.

I have been living in western for 17 years. We have freedoms that I could only dream of when I was a child. The freedom to travel, the freedom to access all information, the freedom to choose what we want from a wide variety of options, amongst many other freedoms.

Today our freedoms are in danger. Nationalist and populist movements threaten to take Europe to the realities, I was constrained by, behind the iron curtain.

I want my family, my child, to continue living in a continent that respects the liberties of each and all individuals. Societies that empower citizens to experience all freedoms available to them.

This is why I am running to the European Parliament. This is why I need your support.

I cannot do this on my own. It takes a village to raise a child, and it takes a village to shape our future. With your support, we can raise the fund necessary to run our Volt campaign to the European Parliament.

A campaign based on respect, and equality for all, a campaign working for a fair and sustainable Europe. A Europe that brings prosperity and welfare to its citizens. A campaign that brings politics to the door of our citizens, and gives them the necessary tools to get involved and help shape our future.

I have experienced life with limited and conditioned freedoms. We cannot take the liberties we have today for granted. We must protect them for our children, the future generation, and ourselves.

We have to stand up for Europe. Are you ready?
