About myself

My name is Natasha Kozlova and I was born in Minsk on the fifth of October 1993. My family is an averagesized Belarusian family: I have a father, a mother and a brother. I was named after my granny and I am very proud of it. I descend from the family of office-workers.

My mother tongue is Belarusian, though in everyday life I speak mostly Russian. I can also speak English a little and I understand spoken Ukrainian and Polish.

Now I am going to speak about my father. His name is Boris Petrovich. He is 42. He is a computer engineer by education, but he is in business now. His firm deals with modern TV sets and computers. He often goes on business trips to different cities of the country and abroad. After his trips he tells us many interesting stories about people, different countries and their traditions. Though my father is a very busy man, he always finds time to listen to our problems and to help us. He is also handy with many things. He can fix almost everything: a washing machine, a vacuum cleaner, a fridge etc. He likes sports. Basketball is his favourite. That is why he is still a very handsome tall man with broad shoulders, fair hair and grey eyes.

My mother’s name is Alla Antonovna. She is four years younger than my father. She is shorter than my father. Her brown hair, small thin nose, blue eyes and open smile make her very beautiful. She is a doctor and she likes her work very much. My mum is fond of music and poetry. She also likes dancing and singing. She attended a music school. My mum plays the piano fairly well. She also does most of the cooking, washing, cleaning and tiding. She seems to be never tired. Of course, we always try to help her as much as we can.

My brother’s name is Victor. He is 12 and naturally he is still at school. He does very well at school, so his school reports are always excellent. He is especially very good at Maths and English. They are his favourite subjects. He says he wants to become an engineer.

He is like his mother: same hair, same eyes, same voice and same manners. Just like his mother, he is fond of music and likes singing and dancing very much. Just like his father, he is fond of sports. My brother is of great help to my parents.

I have got a grandfather and grandmother. They are my grandparents on my mother’s side. They are under 65, and they are still in good health. As they live in the country, they have a large house with a garden nearby. They still keep a small household. They are retired now. My Granny and Granddad enjoy seeing us in their house very much. So we often go to see them on weekends. When summer comes, my brother likes to spend his holidays in the country at our grandparents’.

We have many relatives. Some of them live in Belarus, others live in the Ukraine, Russia and Poland. They always try to come and see us each time we celebrate some family holidays or to send us their best wishes.

I’ve finished school this year. Choosing the right career to follow is one of the most important decisions you ever make. As for me, I made my choice long ago. Besides, my parents encouraged me a lot in choosing my profession. I want to work in the sphere of environment protection and contribute as much as possible to the improvement of the ecology situation in the Republic of Belarus. Therefore, I did my best at school, as well as took a preparatory course at the University. I am always very busy, but when I am free I like to read books and visit museums and art galleries. I have many friends and I like to travel. We visited a lot of interesting places in Belarus and abroad.
