“It is impossible to control the waves but still possible to learn surfing – that is a motto in my life. Changes are very important and necessary in every person life. That’s why I am always open to new opportunities and challenges, interesting social meetings and exciting projects that bring exciting brightness into my life.
I am goal oriented because without the goal it is very easy to lose the light at the end of the tunnel. I have insight which is critical to having the foresight needed in making decisions.
I can’t imagine my life without art, without the excitement of the stage and spotlights, without the backstage anticipation and without the last 3 exciting minutes of “stomach butterflies”. This is when all my emotions turn to pleasure and satisfaction. I love the audience effect – their applause gives my heart the power and inspiration to move further and ahead. I strive to express myself through art, dancing, fashion, acting, pictures and photos.
I’m exceptionally athletic and motivated giving me the power and drive to achieve success. I enjoy doing research delving into understanding worldly issues and stimulating my knowledge.
The engine that drives my life is to achieve and realize all my dreams and aspirations.
It’s wonderful to learn and never too late. I love the art of dancing and acting and communicating my excitement to the audience.”
