- Embassy of the Russian Federation to Japan
Date of birth: Aug. 5, 1993
Number of years in Japan (cumulative): 10 (as of December 2018)
My first encounter with Japan was unconscious, because I was born here and Japan has been a remarkable part of me since I can remember. I've never felt like Japan is a foreign country for me. Japan is a place where I can feel at home away from home.
My motto in life is old-fashioned wisdom that has been repeated to me endlessly since I was a small child — “Study, study and study again.” It delves into the meaning of continuous self-improvement that leads to new challenges to tackle, new personal and professional heights from which I can admire the beauty of the world. It may sound cliche, but all precious things in life are not so complicated.
I joined the service only two years ago. So, I hope my best achievements are yet to come. But as of now, the achievements I am most proud of are within the emotional connections and relationships that I have made with my colleagues, encompassed by both beautiful and difficult life lessons.
To answer this question, I would like to reinforce my motto. I want to learn something new everyday, deepen my knowledge of Japan, its language, economy and political life. What's of utmost importance is to enjoy this process of education and share the positivity with all my colleagues and my significant others just as they graciously share with me everyday.
