"I support the teaching profession and the Global Teacher Prize because the pillars of me "becoming an adult" have been my family and passionate teachers. Thanks to them I am today what I am, they stimulated my brain and created my "values" backbone. I hope that many young people could find global teachers who can understand and guide them to find their path in life."
