It was my father who told me about Almetyevsk State Oil Institute. I didn't plan to go to a foreign country, but my parents wanted me to study in Russia. I followed their advice and decided to send my documents to ASOI. I successfully passed my entrance exams and got a state-funded place.

I like the city and ASOI dormitories very much. I feel safe in Almetyevsk!
