My name is Filip. I’m 28 years old, and I live in Zagreb.

What do you do for a living?

I’m a trained graphic designer and try to earn my living as an illustrator. But since there aren’t many jobs, I’ve been working for quite a while as a sound designer.

What does globalization mean to you?

For me, globalization is a good thing, and we should all keep going on in this direction.

What worries you?

Actually I’m not really worried about anything, or just about your normal everyday problems.

What’s your favorite food?

I like eating, but I don’t have a special, favorite dish; the main thing is to eat well.

What do you expect for your future?

I only expect positive things; that we live better lives in the future and that things will be nicer.

Which country would you like to visit?

Actually I’d like to travel all over the world. But if I had to decide on one country, it would be the Netherlands. I’ve been there and I like how the people are with each other and how they live.
