I am Nadejda, I am 32 years old, divorced, two daughters.
I was born in Cahul, Moldova, a town on the border of Romania, where I lived until I was 16. I live in Chisinau now.
My whole childhood I wanted to become a French teacher, like my mom, but two months before graduating school I realized that the lack of love for history from my side would end up in failing the exams to the Foreign Languages Department from the University side. So in the last week of my school I took a decision that influenced my future. I joined the International Economic Relations Department, and actually am thankful for my lack of respect for history to make me change my mind. This is how I learnt that there is always place for spontaneity in life.
I had a “difficult” childhood – my mom invested hard in my development, and practically forced me to work since I was 14. Nothing scary, believe me – just teaching a 9-year old English, but my, I would have preferred to clean toilets for the first month or two. Later on, the experience I gained allowed me to support myself pretty well. This is how I learnt that often what looks like a cruel parent is actually a caring one.
At the age of 18 I was told that there are little chances for me to have kids, especially without heavy interventions. I was also told that there would be one chance in a million that tests were wrong. Today, this chance in a million is a 15 years old beautiful rebel. My second chance in a million turned 9 this autumn, and something tells me I will try my chances at least once more.
I am full of contradictions, some of which I like, some of which not a real fan of.
I like listening to punk rock, but never object to classics.
I am ironic, sarcastic, and caustic at times, but am definitely a romantic.
I am an early bird with a good bunch of habits of a late bird. (oftentimes it ends up in having just a couple of hours of sleep, well, a price to pay!)
I like swimming, long distance walking and belly dance.
If you read until here, you deserve to know that the above text was a part of my IceBreaker speech at Toastmasters. :)
