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

I started playing badminton after joining the local club in my home town at the age of nine. After competing in junior and senior tournaments I was spotted by some foreign scouts and played in French, Danish and Dutch clubs. My ambition for Baku 2015 is to help Lithuania win a medal in badminton. Travelling and watching movies are my biggest hobbies, but besides that I’m interested in doing all kinds of sports, listening to music and reading books. I have a passion for food and enjoy cooking and eating out with friends.
