Моя история практически начинается 2 апреля 2000 года, когда я была еще совсем молода и наивна, сходя с самолета в аэропорту Копенгагена. Я ехала из прекрасной советской Беларуси к свободе слова Дании. Я взяла на себя большой риск, чтобы изменить свою жизнь и построить мечту из ничего, кроме драйва, желания и мужества. После этого дня последовали решения, переживания, победы, разочарования, борьба и празднования, которые стали историей моей жизни. Я переехала в Данию в возрасте двадцати трех лет, имея в кармане всего десять долларов. Это был первый раз, когда я почувствовала настоящую демократию во всей ее красе. Моя жизнь в чужой стране изначально казалась мне сладкой мечтой, но в реальности это было непросто и совсем не сказкой. Мне пришлось строить свою жизнь из того, что было у меня в чемодане. Но я побывала в грандиозном путешествии, и я хочу поделиться им с вами в этой книге.
