My Europe is my home- full of art, culture and remarkable, diverse history. It could be the home of many other people, who don’t have homes.

If you could, what would be the first thing you would change in Europe?

The first thing I would change in Europe would be to provide shelter and food for the refugees. Everyone deserves to live a decent, normal life, without being threatened every day. Moreover, I think we should treat the immigrants the way we would like to be treated if we had their misfortunate destiny.
