After immigrating to the U.S. with my family in 2005, I became consumed with dissecting the social, political and economic factors that led my family to leave home. To be completely honest, I loved my previous life in my post-communist, Eastern European homeland, so I was slow to make friends and delve into American society. Naturally, I spent my time reading, analyzing and trying to make sense of the world around me and beyond. My experiences have led to a deep appreciation for America’s foundational principles and freedom of thought. In 2021, I finally decided to broadcast my thoughts in hopes of sparking meaningful debate on a variety of issues.
