I did my Bachelor and Master in National Technical University of Ukraine «Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute», Chemical Technology Faculty, Physical chemistry department. Scienrific direction. I studied Chemistry of food supplies and cosmetics at the beginning, but then understood the the world of chemistry is much bigger than I tried myself in „pure organic chemistry“ during my Erasmus internship. After all experiments I chose field in the middle between chemistry and biology as I think that the future is in this direction.

I like spending time with my friends and family, but at the same time I very appreciate the time when I have the possibility to be on my own ( reading books, watching movies, sleeping😉)
Besides that, as a sort of relax I playing the piano (just as amateur).

What is the most useless talent you have?
I can guess almost any melody/song from the first 4 seconds😃

Where is the worst smelling place you have been?
I can’t remember anything.

What ridiculous thing has someone tricked you into doing or believing?
Being in the first grade, I “invented” my language, when I told my cousin about it, he assured me that it was English and I could go to the teacher of English at school and say that I didn’t need to learn a foreign language and I already knew it better than her. My parents were the most surprised 🙈

About which topics could you talk for hours?
Books and movies
