If you have a goal, run to it. If you can’t run, walk to it. If you can’t walk, crawl towards it. And if you can’t even crawl, at least lie down and look in its direction.

About me

Coming from the Kyrgyz Republic in Central Asia, Spanish isn’t a language that’s generally considered useful. But when I was young, it sparked an interest in me and I studied it for five years. After a holiday in Spain and finding out about the IE scholarships, I worked hard to get good grades and qualify for one. Here at IE University, I’ve learned the importance of taking opportunities and making connections. I don’t know exactly what my future holds but I think everything I’ve learned here will be valuable down the line.
