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

Until I was four years old I played in the forest with my dogs everyday for two hours. My family wanted me to be a sprinter but I was too young to start athletics. But, because gymnastics is the main sport, I started to do it at age four. But soon, my family saw that I was talented in gymnastics so eight months later they put me into a higher group to compete with the bigger girls. Now I am a well known gymnast. My first goal is to compete and make the finals at 2015 European Games in Baku. Later, my goal is to compete at 2016 Rio Olympic Games.
