I am Russian with Tatar roots. I grew up in a beautiful, multicultural city, Kazan, I studied Psychology and English language, worked in educational, governmental and international organizations, fell in love with a Dutch man, followed my heart and 10 years ago moved to Amsterdam, the Netherlands. We have 3 beautiful daughters together (Aged 8,6 & 3).
Travelling and helping people has always been my passion. Throughout my school, university and working years I have constantly been involved in the social side life in different roles – master of ceremonies, organizer, planner, coordinator, participant, representative, supervisor, and I have always experienced success and pleasure in each role.
Another passion I have are education and children. If we all could see through the eyes of a child, there would be joy, wonder and magic everywhere and our world would become a better place. That’s why I am often, and with a great pleasure, participating in projects related to education.
My career started at a governmental organization arranging the visits and programs for foreign delegations and organizing international seminars and meetings. I truly enjoyed it because I discovered that we are all children inside, doesn’t matter what you do for a living.
