Lisa is studying in 11th grade, and her hobby is the culinary art. She has been in love with it since the early childhood. When she was 7 years-old, she developed the knack of cooking borshch, Ukrainian national soup.

What’s more, the girl can bake casseroles, but she doesn’t like baking cakes. Lisa is very serious about her future. First she wants to get a profession of a cook, then to study for being a food technologist. She adores humanity subjects like history, languages and literature. In addition, the girl likes physics and astronomy.

As a hobby she prefers playing volleyball, knitting, embroidering, beading and reading. Her favourite authors are T. Shevchenko, J. Goethe and L. Ukrainka. There are always some books on her bed-side table. The girl believes that the most important qualities for people are warm-heartedness, sociability, outgoingness and kindness. Lisa is sure that a woman mustn’t drink alcohol or smoke, that a woman always keeps clean and tidy in her apartment, takes care of her relatives and is ready to help. The girl believes that a family is a real happiness. She is dreaming of having a family. And we believe that this smiley girl will also find her family!
