    "I was a skater in Team Paradise from 2006 to 2015 and I've been in love with synchro skating since my first competitive season. When I was a pupil I liked journalism. When I finished my skating career I decided why not to write about my favorite sport? I’ve been writing for Jura Synchro since 2016 and I also write synchro news for Russian Figure skating Federation website. I have a lot of ideas about the development of our sport and I hope that I can implement them. In addition to this I like travelling and reading books."
