Denis Pushilin addressed a young generation in his welcoming speech.
ʺDear friends, I am glad to welcome you to this festival of youth, talent and future! You now have an interesting time when you build your own future with your own hands. You literally have new acquaintances every day, you discover something new. In fact, you lay the foundation of your entire life.
What you are now experiencing is happening in the Donetsk People’s Republic. Together we lay a foundation for the future of our country and build a home for our children. It is you, young people, who will lead this home. I believe that we can leave the Donetsk People’s Republic in steady hands and you will be able to build strong and prosperous state,ʺ the Head of the Republic said.
According to Vladimir Bidyovka, creativity helps young people to fully discover their skills and potential.
ʺStudentship is a special period, when every young person not only learns his future profession, but also apprehends a special “science”, which is self-revelation and personal fulfilment. Indeed, it is very important to engage in creative activities apart from studies, to show yourself in different guises.
Freshman’s Debut is an opportunity for students to show their creative selves, because activity and creativity of thinking are necessary in any business.
I am convinced that today all of us will witness a real holiday, and students – the participants of the debut – will gain invaluable experience,ʺ the Speaker of the DPR Parliament noted.
It should be noted that the inter-university student festival “Freshman’s Debut – 2018” is held for the 15th time.
