About Me


a journey to myself


I was born in Ukraine and moved with my parents to Germany when I was 13. Currently, I live 50% of my time in Kiev and 50% in Wismar (Germany). Of course, if I'm not travelling. I'm looking forward to see new people and new places, to learn and experience new things. Currently I'm learning to teach. It is my greatest hobby today. I never learned it in the University and my poor students are my inspirations for learning now. My life gets more and more interesting with every year. There is so much to tell and so much to ask about.


each human lives on his own planet with his own rules and laws on it
