Robert: Robert.

Selim: Selim.

Cara: Nice to meet you!

Robert and Selim: You too.

Robert: Nice accent. Where are you from?

Cara: I'm from Glasgow.

Robert: Oh, really? My mum's from near Glasgow, so I'm half Scottish.

Cara: Cool. Do you live in Scotland?

Robert: No, we live in England, near Manchester. My dad's from there. What about you, Selim?

Selim: I'm from Leeds originally but I grew up near London.

Cara: Are you both doing history on its own?

Selim: No. I'm doing history and German.

Robert: I'm doing it with maths, actually.

Selim: History and maths. That's different!

Robert: Yeah, I couldn't decide between arts and sciences. Maths doesn't help with remembering dates, though! And you?

Cara: I'm doing history and French.

Selim: I wanted to do French but German was easier, so I took that.

Cara: German is so hard!

I liked study Chemistry since 8th grade. My major in university was Chemical Engineer. At the moment, I work as a laboratory technician in a pharmaceutical company. I love this job that I started working right after graduating from university.

When I was younger and studied at university I preferring to studying constitutional law! because I’d studied at a lawyer. But now, when I dedicated more than a decade to my career path to practicing law, my interests is became so broad. I dedicated a lot of time to discovered a source of law, their genesis and basis. I started to examine a history of countries, a history of nations and global history, emerging process in economic and political growing, psychology and humane nature. But, for me personally, most significant book is a Bible. This Holy Book contain all knowledges, which needed for every person.
