Seventy percent of adolescents surveyed believe that they will have more opportunities to develop and fulfil their abilities abroad, and more than 50% do not feel talented at all. This is evidenced by the results of a sociological survey by Kantar Ukraine conducted on behalf of the Daryna Zholdak Foundation.
In particular, most young people believe that the creative class in Ukraine is poorly represented, and talented creative people most often go abroad. At the same time, every third teenager would like to choose a creative profession, and 74% of the population believe that everyone has talent, it just needs to be revealed.
The main obstacles include financial difficulties, self-doubt, reluctance or failed attempts, as well as a lack of understanding of where to move and how.
In addition, research has shown that more than 80% of young people are open to change and ready to develop their abilities but do not understand how to do this and lack tools. In addition, it is important for adolescents to feel approval from others. However, one-fifth of young people do not hear about their talent from anyone, and 67% want to be told in school how to develop their creative abilities.
