About Myself

I’m Svetlana Aleksandrova. I was born on the 29th of March in 1980 in Rechitsa but in 1985 we moved to Gomel as my father got a job here. At the age of 6 I went to school number 22 in Gomel. I was quite good at school. My favourite subjects were Russian, Geography and History, but I didn’t do very well in physics or chemistry. I left school in 1996. Since September 1998 I’ve been a student of the Philological department at Gomel State University named after F. Skorina. I’m doing a correspondence course, it means that I have to combine work and study (I work as a teacher in a school). It’s not easy to have a full-time job and to study, but I’m really enjoying my course at the university and I like my job, too.

The things I like doing most are watching TV and reading, I’m also fond of listening to music. I’m a sociable person so I have a lot of friends. I spend a lot of time with them, we watch video together or listen to music, sometimes we go to the theatre or they come to my place and we just chat. I’m not married and still live with my parents.

My father’s name is Vladimir. He works as an engineer at a big plant. I think my father is quite handsome. He is tall and broad-shouldered. His dark hair is just beginning to go grey. He’s a clever man but a little unpractical. Though he is always busy he helps my mother about the house.

My mother’s name is Irina. She’s a tall good-looking woman of 46 but she doesn’t look her age. She has a kind face and when you meet her the first thing you notice is her smile – she has a very charming smile. As to her character, she is kind and gentle, warm-hearted and tactful. My mother is a housewife, she does all the housework and helps my elder brother bring up his sons. My mother’s hobbies are knitting and reading books. She’s also very good at cooking.

My elder brother, Alexei, is married and has his own family – a wife and two children, so he doesn’t live with us. But we often see each other and we still celebrate all the holidays together.

I think I’m a happy person. I have a loving family and a lot of friends, an interesting job and a lot of hobbies.
