Interest & Hobbies

I have a great interest in languages and different cultures. In my spare time I enjoy keeping fit by running, going to the gym or attending master classes in hip-hop, ballet or jazz. Dancing has always been part of my life. I have been dancing for more than 17 years, participated in international competitions and worked as a dancer and dance teacher. I also enjoy travelling: have been to the USA, Sweden, Turkey, Egypt, Bulgaria, and Estonia; studied and lived in Sweden for 1 year.
