“Theaters can role as a tool to derive a much better society, country or even a better world. This is what I believe in.
Theaters are not just a stage for my profession. It is my “love” and my “life”. I find my character in theaters and it gives me the ability of improving my concepts to my community. Theaters are like a window in a room, metaphorically; when you stand in front of it, you can see another perspective and your visions become more profound.”
