  18. Additional Information
At Kharkov University I took courses in computer application, speed-typing and record-keeping. I was a group monitor and one of the best students, which can be seen from my diploma. During my University course I participated in a students’ exchange programme with China, studying at Beijing Normal University for one year.

In 2007 I was a marketing intern in Maryland, USA.

I am keen on psychology and personal development. Have interpreted Clean Language and Goal Achievement workshops. In my opinion, to achieve one’s goals the most important qualities to have are self-confidence, attention, memory, quick response/efficiency, ability to plan and analyse results, ability to make pleasant surprises. I am a strong believer in hard work and positive thinking.
