Valerio Popova (in grey sweater)
23 years old, Chisinau, Moldova

Study: Psychology and Pedagogy
At: University of Moldova
“ When I was seven years old I picked up a grenade that was left behind after the war of 1991 and 1992 between Moldova and Transnistria. Now I am blind and I miss my left fore arm. My roommates support me to succeed with my study. Because I am blind I have a better developped intuition, or sixth sense. This fits well with psychology. I get a grant because I am blind by a Non Govermental Organisation. The rest of the study is payed by my parents. Later I want to open a grocery store. ”
