Today I lived and enjoyed every step at a distance, and there was still time to think about life and how grateful I was to fate for everything in my life.

Thanks to Daniil Sapunov for coaching me. Thanks to our DataHeart Team for their support and inspiration, especially for their flashmob-support that they organized the day before!”, – commented Mykhailo Shelemba.
