I really love to study literature but I have done my masters in Biological Science.
Overall, I studied French, German, and English subjects at home country University so my first diploma was awarded as a translator of world language at the University of Tashkent. But I should be honest, that I studied most time English instead of French or German. At the moment, I studied the technical subjects so I was awarded as a technical writer at the University of Germany. I am interested in technical subjects, like semiconductors or software programs.
