Orphans in Ukraine - Helping Children in Need
My name is Vadim.
Recently, Danilo, my brother, and I, turned 18 years old. I think this date is important for many. I was a little surprised, but in fact, there is nothing like that. The main thing is to leave previous mistakes in the past. Then life will become much easier.
At the moment, I live in Odessa. But I was born in Alchevsk. This is a small but quite cozy town. Although the thoughts of the past speak for me now, because I miss the place that has changed a lot.
My brother and I were born on January 22, 2004. Sometimes I think about what my brother would be like if it were not for cerebral palsy - (infantile cerebral palsy). The term hides a whole complex of various disorders of the nervous and muscular systems that occur in children.
It happened. And there's nothing you can do about it. I love my brother the way he is. I remember my first school well. The schedule included, along with the usual lessons, procedures, massage, physiotherapy, and exercises. The team was friendly. We supported each other. Danil studied individually, but he nevertheless took an active part in the educational process along with the class. I never worried about him. After all, my classmates always helped him if he needed help.
Despite the fact that the city was small, it had everything you needed and most importantly was nearby. Earlier, in Alchevsk, I attended an art school. There were many interesting educational institutions and who knows, maybe drawing would absorb me. Designers are very popular right now. But having moved to Odessa, I quickly forgot about brush or pencil.
Odessa, in comparison with Alchevsk, is a giant. We often moved from place to place and changed four schools. I don't have any vivid memories of my school days. The attitude towards us, was neutral and thanks for that.
Now, everything is stable and I am very happy about it. Love for Odessa woke up gradually. The sea is not very pleasant in summer, but in spring or autumn, when there are no vacationers, it is like a living person, as if hugging you. It's the most wonderful feeling in the world.
Gradually, new, interesting hobbies appeared.
I love to sing. I attend private vocal lessons once a week. Many say that a beautiful voice is a gift. But I think it's just a habit. Everyone can learn to hit the notes correctly, keep the rhythm and use vocal techniques. There are people who did not know how, but they were able to reach the level of a professional. I know that you are capable of anything if you want.
Once upon a time, my brother met guys who really like the martial art - aikido, and Danil interested me. After some time, I began to study with him. I cannot call myself a professional. I only know the basics well. I just love aikido because it is useful. You get rid of negative energy, and you communicate with interesting people.
After the 9th grade, I entered college as a Computer typing Operator. Of course, there are drawbacks. But basically, when I come to my class, I feel cozy. I remember that computer science was given to me with difficulty.
The real love for the computer and various interesting programs woke up in me after. Inside this device, there is a world with its own interesting features. I love software from Adobe and the basic set of Microsoft Office. This is my last course.
Now I'm getting ready for the Independent External Examination. To be honest, I am very worried, although I understand that there is nothing wrong with these exams. Now the main thing is to try to get a good score, and then I will think about going to work or studying further.
Be brave and never give up. Thank you for your attention!
