When I was 16 my friend told me that Ronny her elitist friend has access to something new of students in the US that is called FaceBook. I understood that it’s a tool to communicate with your student’s friends from abroad, most of them from Ivy League universities and the common opinion was that- if you have Facebook – you are a cool global person. So, of course, I had to open an account (although I haven’t known no one from the US) , but a huge global Network that connects people from all over the world seemed to me like a crazy field of opportunities to make big things.

Social media is the Game Changer of my life.
Because I grow up in parallel to the development of social media, I was excited by the power it has every time I used it.
I present myself to the world by Facebook.
I promote the messages I believe in.
Social media networks are our main tool in the Public Diplomacy industry when through social media campaigns we lead to real actions (the site is a tool to promote the Roger Waters Video) .
Today I use it mostly for news updates and to connect my Family and friends back home. With the social network, I can sometimes feel like I’m almost there. The best example is my cousin’s wedding last Thursday. I was there the whole ceremony via FaceTime, crying from emotion and thankful to Mark Zuckerberg.
