People often ask me why I chose Almetyevsk from all Russian cities. To be honest, the choice was obvious for me, because my friends studied in Almetyevsk. They spoke well of this city and ASOI.

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.
