John Ashirov, a resident of Samarkand, became a participant of the II International Youth Forum «Eurasia Global»

John, what influenced your decision to participate in the forum?

- Before the forum in Samarkand, I was actively engaged in public activities, but there were not enough knowledge and material base for the implementation of my projects. The International Youth Forum «Eurasia Global» is the only project that allows foreign citizens to receive grant support. I passed a serious enough selection to get to the forum and presented my project here, the topic of which is very important for the international community. As a result, I received a grant, which I implemented for the Central Asian Youth round table.

Has something changed in your life after the forum?

- At the forum, I realized that I needed to get a higher professional education. I can't move on without it. Now I am finishing my Master's degree at the Financial University under the Government of Uzbekistan. I study English and Spanish. This allows me to feel free and communicate with my friends and colleagues from different countries.

In addition to the business education program, were there cultural events at the forum? Did they help the communication between the guys?

- Orenburg is rich in various leisure places. I remember the trip to the national village, where each house is represented in a special national color. There we saw a commonality of cultures that add to each other, enhancing the general perception of the friendly atmosphere of a multinational village.

Young people and girls from different cities and countries come to the forum, and they are all united by a common creative cause.

Does it help to build personal relationships?

- Yes, and there are a lot of such examples. My friend from Samara found his soulmate on the forum. Now he has a family, he and his wife are engaged in one common cause and it's great. A total of 83 pairs met during the forum. And I do not lose the hope of meeting my future love for life.

Recall that the International Youth Forum «Eurasia Global» will be held in Orenburg from August 21 to 27, 2023. The participants will be young specialists and professionals from Russia and foreign countries, who carry out their activities in the fields of research, international cooperation, media, opinion leaders, young entrepreneurs, civil servants, leaders and members of organizations involved in the development of the movement of children, as well as winners of the contests of the platform «Russia - the land of opportunities» and others.
