 - Imagination is a huge power of mankind and our generation for me. The young generation has great opportunities to draw their ideas from their imagination, and generate interesting ideas. We can get a good education, we have a huge network of knowledge platforms that can develop our ideas. It seems to me that we have many opportunities in Kazakhstan.
