About Me





I love the Sun, and if you have connections with the Sun you can even create my mood:)

I am currently a student in Vienna. I am trying to live as eventful life as possible, filled with knowledge both theoretical and practical, new experiences which broaden my outlook and nice people who make my life on the whole!

To my mind our world is much better than the news shows it to be. CS is the way to prove it: strangers help strangers with an attitude of "it is normal!" - that is how it should be! That is the way to make the world around you better - through help and involvement. I am new to CS, but I am longing for the new experiences of meeting people, helping them, sharing my time with them and then - meet them again in some period of time and understand that you together did something notable!

Speaking about myself, I am originally from Ukraine. I decided to pursue my MA at the Lauder Business School, which is an international very diverse school with students from all over the world!(kinda a melting pot here:). Now I am undergoing a unique period of my life. I feel I am not just in Vienna but I also take a bit from each student from each country;) I would love to continue this pattern and meet people outside Vienna as well!


I am not perfect but parts of me are excellent!
I believe that almost every person has an interesting "spot" in him/her which will make him/her excellent. Just try to see it, to reveal it! People are not perfect (thanks God, otherwise I would have so many complexes:), but many of their characteristics could be much admired. :)
