A father of three, a researcher, an engineer.
“I believe in non-selectiveness. In something that catches me. Once I had to give an interview to the Jazzy Radio regarding a major fundraising campaign. That was a live interview. My first one ever. I met a lady there who ran the program, the interviewer. I’ll never forget her warm, understanding gaze, her flooding kindness. It opened something inside me and I suddenly realized that we can and should speak about how we feel and what we think. It became so clear to me at that moment, just as the microphone panic and the kind, well-meaning attention demolished every single obstacle that could get in my way. Strangely, I only understood my own message as I continued to speak. That giving is a hard job. And, we do not really know how to do it well. It’s very difficult to give “in the right way”, to catch the right moment, to pick on the right thing, to be aware of why you doing it… To beat the awkward feeling of intrusion, despite of the noble intentions. Fates, stories, cases… My self-explained credo is non-selectiveness and personal participation. The non-avoidance. It often hurts, of course. But there’s no other way about it. Being deep down and high up, often at one and the same time.” (Tibor Jakabovics)
