I was born and grew up in Uzbekistan. My passion in working with children came from my studies in psychology at University back in my home country.  I have been working in child care settings for 3 years before I came to Australia in 2009. Since then I have continued to pursue my interest in working with children and have completed my Certificate 3 and later Diploma in children services.
