There are outstanding people in all countries, aren’t there?

Schools and universities are important as they are a place where you can learn a lot. Experienced teachers and professors gladly answer your questions and give useful recommendations. The problem is that education has little to do with greatness. Libraries proved to be much more useful than educational institutions. Self-education is known to be more effective than mindless sitting in a classroom. People who study on their own are more serious about reaching their goals. They study because they need more knowledge. They are aware how valuable it is. The better concentration, the higher results. If you study without a tutor, it takes you quite a lot of time to achieve your aim. Though whatever you gain this way you will have it forever. I am perfectly sure there is nothing to prevent a person from success if he gives it a go. You needn’t take my word for it. Read a biography of Lomonosov, for instance.

1. Have you ever talked to a well-known person?

Unfortunately, no. I do wish to talk with a well-known person. I want to know what his secrets are. Why did he become famous? What makes him famous? I read biographies to know more about famous people. A friendly chat will be as interesting as a good book.

2. Who do you think can be called an outstanding person?

In my opinion, outstanding people are those who managed to do something special. For instance, scientists who made an important discovery. Pop starts are more famous than scientists but I wouldn’t call the former outstanding. There is nothing special about them. To some degree, all people can sing. Only few can come up with a bright idea.

3. What famous public figures of Belarus do you know?

I can’t think of someone who is as well-known as our president. Whenever you switch on your TV, it wouldn’t take you long to see a video report about his work. He often visits different towns so many people have a chance to meet him.

4. Would you like to be popular and famous?

Many people dream of being popular and famous. They think that it may make them rich. It is not always the case. Many well-off people are unknown to the public. Celebrities often complain about being under constant pressure. I mean photographers and journalists who bother the famous by asking silly questions or trying to take private photos without permission. I don’t want to be followed everywhere so I would prefer not to be popular and famous.
