WHO I AM

I can be described as an enthusiastic and determined person who very much enjoys learning new things.  I believe in having a goal in life, determining steps on the way to achievement and work hard to reach success. I always had targets in my life. My biggest achievement in life is my children. Being a working mother of two precious daughters, while completing my distance study for the seven years has helped me to set priorities effectively and understand that every dilemma has a legitimate solution.
