    Telenor Youth Forum opens many doors, but the most important thing is that I have gathered new experience and knowledge which will be of great importance for my future. I am delighted by the ideas, enthusiasm and courage of each participant.

     

    I learned a lot from them, and I hope that we will find ways to cooperate in the future. Telenor succedeed  in making TYF fun and educational at the same time.  TYF  is an excellent opportunity to spread the knowledge and experience, so we can change the world togehter.
