A future soccer player Bohdan can’t imagine his life without soccer! The boy is training hard every day, so no wonder his favourite subject at school is physical trainings. The boy plays as a defender, and once he would like to play in “Barcelona”. His idols are Ronaldo and Ukrainian player of “Dynamo Kyiv” Horobets’. Nevertheless, Bohdan also enjoys playing basketball and table tennis.

What’s more, the boy is interested in Ukrainian language and embroidering. His favourite film is “The Fast and the Furious”, and his favourite character is Dominic Toretto. The boy likes Toretto’s energy and strength. Bohdan would like to visit the USA, and that’s why he has started learning English. Once he was in Canada, and then he realized that everybody could improve our world by being polite and nit leaving the garbage in the street. This trip has impressed him so much, that now he’s working hard on his behavior for becoming better. At some future day Bohdan would like to get a driver’s license, though his dear dream is, of course, to have parents and a house to live in. We hope it happens any time
