  4. 4. It all started with me. When I was young, I went to a boarding school and my dream was to become a psychologist, but my mother was not able to support me.
  5. 5. It seemed like my life was ruined at the age of 16 when I ran away from home, where my step-father abused me. I was hoping to find love and support in getting married.
  6. 6. When I was 17, I gave birth to my daughter. I had no education, no accommodation, and no skills to live. All I had was disappointment and broken dreams.
  7. 7. But someone else believed in me. God put a christian in my way, who believed in me and invested the first 100 dolars so I could enter an university.
  8. 8. Later on, my daughter wanted to continue her studies at the Music School and, like my mother, I was not able to support her.
  9. 9. In order to get money to continue her studies, she played violine in the streets.
  10. 10. Her action became news in the latvian newspaper and then someone else believed in my daughter. Viktor Gludausis read the news and decided to help my daughter.
  11. 11. Imagine my happiness when the journalist called to give me the good news :)
  12. 12. And now I want to pay forward what once was given to me when I most needed it: support, inspiration, faith, and a chance to be creative instead of criminal.
  13. 13. That's the story of how a Youth Center in Karosta was created...
  14. 14. ...which had received the award of one of the best organizations in Liepaja, in 2013.
