Especially recommended for those whose profession is associated with the load on the voice apparatus. Remedy and prevent anemia. It also lowers the blood cholesterol.

DESCRIBE YOUR CHILDHOOD/GROWING YEARS (8-13 YEARS OLD).
Although I was an absolutely happy child, throughout my childhood and adolescence I suffered ridicule from peers because of my high growth, and later because of puberty problems with my skin and appearance in general. The story about the ugly duckling is very close to me, because only with age I began to blossom and get rid of complexities. Now, I remember this period with a smile, because all this ridicule made me a strong girl and an independent woman.

WHAT IS YOUR MEMORABLE MOMENT?
When I was very young (about 3 years old), we picked up a tricolor cat on the street, which later lived in our family for 19 years!

ANY SPECIAL STORIES OR FACTS ABOUT YOUR FAMILY?
Once my father decided to move from Belarus to Russia to a small city by the sea called Nakhodka. Around the same time, my mother also decided to leave the Mari El Republic closer to the sea. There they met, fell in love, and started a family, where I was later born.

WHAT IS THE MOST UNUSUAL THING YOU HAVE EVER DONE?
I jumped from a 10-meter cliff into the sea.

WHAT TIPS CAN YOU SHARE TO PROMOTE ECOTOURISM & CLIMATE CHANGE?
Few people realise that the most acute problem of our planet is climate change. And the main reason for this is people. They destroy the ozone layer and provoke the accumulation of greenhouse gases, reducing the area of forests, burning fuel and not controlling the decomposition of organic waste. I could give advice, but this is a problem of consciousness of each person individually. There is an option to create laws, or work through advertising and instead of new products show new ways to solve environmental problems. I sincerely believe that people's consciousness will become more environmentally friendly.

WHAT MAKES YOU PROUD OF YOUR COUNTRY?
Very friendly and hospitable people. Also Belarus is the “Silicon Valley” of Eastern Europe. About 10 years ago, the High-Tech Park was created here, where now there are about 170 companies, 27,000 IT specialists. In Belarus, there is virtually no corruption and blat. To get off a bribe to the GAI officer is practically unrealistic, and to enter a higher education institution on a doom is even more difficult. Very often, even the children of deans cannot enter the university where their parents work.

WHAT CAN YOU PROMOTE ABOUT YOUR COUNTRY?
The territory of our country is 40% is forest. Also we have more then 300 national dishes of potatoes. If why and go to Belarus - then to admire the Bialowieza Forest. This is the largest and oldest forest in Europe, where nature is wild and innocent, where there are more than two thousand giant trees, each 500 years old. Throughout Eurasia, only in Belarus live Bison - wild bulls. You will not find these animals in any country of our continent (except in zoos). All euro banknotes are made from Belarusian flax.
