My name is Oleg. I am seventeen. When I look at myself in the mirror I see a boy with short black hair, brown eyes. As to my appearance I'm rather tall and slim. I think that I'm calm and modest. I like my friends, I like to laugh and joke. I have got a good sense of humour. I think I am hard-working and diligent.
I was born on the 15th of February 1996 in Pyatigorsk where I live now together with my parents and my two sisters and elder brother.
And now a few words about my inclinations. I have got a hobby - I'm fond of reading books. They give me more knowledge. In my opinion, books are a source of emotional inspiration and romantic feeling. The time spend on a good book is never wasted. Besides studying, I like to go to the cinema, whenever I have some time to spare. Sometimes I’m keen on playing different sport games for health and pleasure. I usually play such games as football, volleyball.
I had asked myself a lot of times what I wanted to be when I left school. A few years ago it was difficult to give a definite answer. I changed my mind several times. But at the end I realized that my strongest desire was to continue learning Biology and Chemistry. That’s why I entered Pyatigorsk Medical and Pharmaceutical Institute. I hope my dream came true. Here I study a lot of interesting subjects and find out a great deal of amazing things and phenomena. I get acquainted with new people, take part in social events, competitions and help to arrange holidays.
And the last thing I would like to tell you about things I hope to achieve in my life are: after finishing the Institute, I want to have a very successful career, to build the home of my dreams and to find someone in my life to share all that with.
