About Me

During my primary school education, I have been engaged in wide range of extracurricular activities: I took painting and computer classes, attended circus studio and gymnastics school, I participated in number of school performances, as well as performed in kindergartens bringing joy and smile to little children. 

When I started with high school me and my family moved to another city. Transition from school to gymnasium was rather challenging and took a little bit of adjustment in terms of learning experiences and requirements of new school. In new school I have started my research work and in-depth English language learning. I guess, I have subconsciously knew that I will move abroad eventually. Occasionally I participated in school theater and continued doing acrobatics in my free time. 

I have graduated school in 2010 and pursued Bachelor degree in “International Business and Economics” at Poltava University of Economics and Trade. In summer of 2011 I, for the first time ever, went abroad to do a 1-month summer German language course at “Institut für Sprachen” in Kassel, Germany. In 2013 I went there once again, but this time for 2 months. During one of the excursions, we went to see a small town of Schmalkalden and got a small tour around the campus. I have immediately fallen in love with it and was determined to do my Master degree there.

After a year of thorough preparations, documents collection and Bachelor graduation, in October 2014, I came to Schmalkalden and started my Master’s degree in “International Business and Economics”. Since then I have done a 4-months Erasmus Internship in Czech Republic and finished couple of internships in marketing communications and project management departments in Germany. During six years I lived in number of cities in Germany as Schmalkalden, Wiesbaden, Darmstadt, Bonn and Cologne and of course in the city of Brno in Czech Republic. I have graduated university on 31st March, 2020 after almost 6 amazing years of student life filled with amazing adventures and determined to start a career.

So, right now I am a proud Master graduate who is about to start a career in Marketing Communications and/or Online Marketing/Social Media. I am embracing new experiences and growing personally and professionally. I try to improve my German language skills and learn more about social media and photography.

In my free of learning time, I am doing yoga and meditating, exploring the beautiful nature around and basically I am just enjoying these moments of my life! And of course I am not forgetting about Netflix!

That is shortly about me and my life journey. More about my Life as Expat in Germany to follow. Please like and write your comments and don’t forget tell me more about yourself. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Marketing Diaries

“The best marketing doesn’t feel like marketing.” — Tom Fishburne, Founder & CEO, Marketoonist

Hello, dear friends! You have landed on my Marketing Diaries page. You might be wondering what is it about and why is it here? When this blog is all about Personal Development and Expat Life in Germany?

Well, you are both right and wrong. The truth to be told, marketing has become a huge part of my life ever since I came to study in Germany. It all started with just an innocent class of International Marketing. Before I started it, I was not expecting anything special from it. I assumed it was just a usual boring class during which you just browse your phone trying not to draw too much attention to yourself. I was looking into the window waiting for the professor to finally appear. The door slightly opened and a middle aged man appeared. He slowly came in and looked around. All students quickly put down their phones and stared back. He introduced himself and there we go! That is how I got hooked up to marketing!

You will ask – what is the catch? What happened then? I will tell you. There are two different types of professors in this world – the ones who know their subject and those ones who live their subject. He was the one who lived his subject, you could see it from the way he spoke about it, from the way he interacted with the audience. There was not a single lecture of his that was boring and I never ever had a desire to look at my phone. 

The next thing I knew was me taking an Erasmus internship in Marketing and Social Media. I spent four amazing months in Czech Republic learning how marketing works in a start-up environment. I got even more hooked up! That is when I just didn’t want to stop!

Right upon my return from Czech Republic, basically one week later, I started nine months long internship in Marketing Communications. It was first time I have worked for a huge corporation. Here the whole mixture of feelings appeared – excitement, fear, happiness, joy. It was all at once, it basically swiped me off my feet. It was a brand new world for me. Meeting so many people, getting to know amazing colleagues, photographers and influencers, being part of Photokina photography fair! I was overwhelmed.

From that moment onward I realized, that I am in LOVE WITH MARKETING and that it is and will be an inevitable part of my life from now and forever. 

In these series of Blog Posts, I will share with you my love for Marketing, how cool it is and what I love most about it. I will share with you useful tips and give advise if you ever want to pursue this career path!

STAY TUNED!

Photography

I have discovered my love for photography back when I was doing my 9-months internship at Panasonic. There I have been working in marketing communications department together with digital imaging team. One of my assignment was event support during one of biggest industry fair in Cologne – “Photokina”. It was pretty amazing time and since then I am totally in love with it.

I remember one time, I have spent over three hours standing in one spot trying to make a perfect close-up shot of a bee. I didn’t feel tired or bored, I didn’t even notice this time to fly by – I realized it only after the sun started going down.

I have set up a profile on Pixabay, where my photos are available free of charge for personal and commercial use. You are welcome to browse through my gallery on Pixabay

Currently I am using my favorite camera – Panasonic Lumix DC with two lenses and my amazing phone Huawei P30 Pro. Later on I am planning on buying even more lenses to enrich my starter-kit.

Traveling

Traveling is another passion of mine. This passion started after I have first traveled to Germany to participate in summer language course. Each free weekend together with our university professor and fellow students we would discover Germany and other EU countries.

Most memorable was when we visited France (Nice, Cannes and Paris) and Monaco. We would usually go on 2-3 days guided bus tours. In total till now I have consider myself just a beginner in terms of travel. I have just visited 8 countries, most of them in EU and a lot of different cities in Germany of course. After COVID 19 I am planning to resume my travel and visit Belgium and Austria. Another dream of mine is to visit my cousin in USA one day and to travel to Japan.

In my Travel Blog Posts series I will tell you more about my adventures in those countries and share with you amazing memories I’ve made and local tips I found out myself.
