"I love working with children and creativity. While studying in University I worked as a mathematics tutor and a children's animator. I was making decoration for wedding parties and handmade gifts. I was fond of decoupage, painting on glass, creating jewelry from polymer clay. It was always interesting to try myself in different creative directions such as cooking soap and candles, floristry, etc. I've worked in a children's carpentry workshop, after in a studio of engineering creativity for children. Among clubs I was attending during school years were patchwork, sewing, clay modeling clubs, a club for the creation of rag dolls of different nations, club of web design, etc".
