Hello, my name is Tekla Lezhava. I am 16 years old. I live in Tbilisi, Georgia with my parents, grandmother and brother.  I am studying at  "Aia-Gess." I can speak English and a little bit Russian and I am studying Chinese, this language is new challenge for me and I like it so much. Chinese is quite hard but I want just a little time to figure out of that.  In general I love doing a lot of things, like going to the different lectures and I think this helps me to develop different skills. Also I like art, culture, museums and theaters. Me and my mom  often go to the theater, when I watch the performance I feel all this moves which is performed by actress. In my free time I read books or watch movies. Basically I like dramatic movies and books, also science fiction, psychological and so on. In my life I want to be a successful women, I am going to pass exams for the university on the business faculty. In general I am purposeful girl and I always try to do something which is my aim.
