Everyone asks themselves: “Who am I?” And I have the same question to myself. Sometimes it is difficult to answer to this question because I am growing up and my mind is changing. When I was a child, I wanted to be a model. When I was a teenage, I wanted to a professional tennis player. And now I have some goals for future and maybe they will change soon. They may change because I am changing. Every single day and every single person can influence on your developing personality. And I would like to tell you who I am now. I am Anastacia Ponomareva. I am 21 years old. I live in Kazakhstan which is situated in Central Asia. I live in a town which is called Taldykorgan. I was born there on the 1st of October, 1988. Now I am a 3rd year course student at Zhetysu State University. I adore reading books. One of the most exciting books I have ever read in my life is “Twilight”. It is the debut, young – adult vampire-romance novel by author Stephenie Meyer. Also, I enjoy watching movies three times a week at home. But if I have enough time, I will go watching new films in my local cinema. Now I am waiting of a new movie which is called “New Moon”. As everyone else I can not live without music. I listen to different styles of music. It depends on my mood. I try to follow a healthy lifestyle. I play tennis in the summer, but in winter I do Yoga and Aerobics. I do not drink alcohol and I am a non-smoker. My country is a melting pot of other nationalities and cultures. People who live in Kazakhstan are all called Kazakhstani people. Kazakhstani people are hospitable, friendly and patient. Many people who know Kazakhstani people recall with gratitudethe warmth and comfort offered by persons who would share their last piece of bread. And it is true. I am happy that I was born here because it is place where my family and friends live, where I went to school and where I have grown up.
