Üldinfo

Estonia's most valuable resource is its people. I care about my country and I want everyone to have an opportunity to realise their potential. I have worked in a public law institution for 20 years and I know how easily one can fall into a comfortable rut and lose one’s passion. I have always tried to avoid that and find new opportunities and angles in everything, and have demanded the same from others.
