Me and My Plans for the Future
Let me introduce myself. My full
name is Ekaterina Petrovna Ivanova, but friends normally call me by my first name, Katya. I was
born on September, 8, 2001 into a family of lawyers. I’m the
only child in the family.
I’m a pupil of the eleventh form of a
secondary school. Our school is a
gymnasium. It offers
a general course of academic and non-academic subjects (like
sports and home economics), providing general education.
Besides, it offers a number of
courses giving profound knowledge in a variety of fields: the humanities, natural sciences, mathematics.
I specialize in the humanities. The courseI takeincludes
Russian, Russian Literature, Social
Sciences and two foreign languages - English and French.
Social Sciences and English have always been my favourites, but my chief
interest is law.
My dream has always been to become a lawyer. I’ve chosen this
profession as my future occupation a long time ago. As a child, I
listened to my parents discussing
professional matters. Little by little, I got
interested in the subject and
began thinking of law as my prospective
occupation. For me, choosing a career is not only a matter of future prestige and wealth.
In my opinion, a job should be interesting and socially important. That is the
reason why I have chosen the profession of a lawyer, which gives plenty of opportunities to
help people in trouble. I am very well aware of the fact that my
interest in the subject is insufficient,
I need profound knowledge in the chosen field. That is why my ambition is
to enter the law department of
the University of Moscow. That’s a difficult task, and I have
to study twice as hard as others. I also take a six-month preparatory course at the
University of Moscow. We are
given lectures on Literature, Social Sciences; we
have seminars in these
subjects, too, and also tutorials
I hope I’ll manage to
pass my school-leaving exams and entrance exams at the
University with good and excellent marks. That’ll give me a chance of
entering the University this year. If I fail at the exams, I’m going to have a try next year. I
think to become a lawyer is my final choice.
