Additional information / What would you like people to know about you?

My sister introduced me to fencing in 2000 and I fell in love with the sport. I have competed in seven world and European championships (senior) and three world junior championships. My dream is to win a medal at the European Games and then become an Olympic champion. My favorite book is The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov. My favourite place in the world is the Louvre museum in Paris, and in Azerbaijan it is Maiden Tower. I think the main challenge in fencing is the psychological pressure.
