Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: my name is Lya, I am 19 years old and I have been living in France for 7 years. I am Moldovan (you see the small country between Ukraine and Romania 😉 ?)
I work in an insurance brokerage firm and I am a student in the same field
What Inspires You Every day? : something that inspires me? I would say my motorcycle. It’s the only thing that keeps me hanging on to life and feel alive
What is some words of wisdom you live by?: « don’t do to others what you don’t want them to do to you » in my opinion everything ends up coming back to you, karma forgets no one
What is your ultimate goal in life? : work not for survival but for pleasure and at the same time have a happy family. not having a basic lifestyle like people nowadays. and maybe have 3 motorcycles Haha
What are your thoughts on people who seek attention on social media, and what message would you like to give them? : I think they are people with hidden traumas, they are suffering from something that hurt them so they are trying to show that they are worth loving.
A message? You are good enough. you don’t need to prove your worth<3
How would you help people around the world who are going through mental health problems? : I should already help myself with my mental problems haha.
more seriously, we should make access to psychiatric care simpler and remove all the clichés about crazy people
How would you describe a better world for us all? : a better world ? everything would be better than the world of today which leads us straight to our loss. people should have more empathy, less jealousy and competition. a world where everyone helps others
What else would you like to tell others about you or your life?: I went through a lot of traumatic things during my teenage years : including harassment, self-harm, twa attempted rapes , i tried to kill myself more than once. now I’m in my 20s and I’m an adult who doesn’t trust anyone, finds it hard to love and to feel loved. your actions can destroy a person…
