АННА СОЛОДКОВА

МЕНЕДЖЕР ПО РАЗВИТИЮ

Здравствуйте! Меня зовут Анна, и я являюсь представителем Kiwi Education в Москве.

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

Закончила институт по экономической специальности. На последних курсах института заинтересовалась логистикой, и по окончанию ВУЗа благополучно проработала в этой области 2 года. В результате поняла, что логистика в теории и на практике – не соответствуют друг другу, поэтому убрала этот пункт из списка того, чем бы я хотела заниматься. Далее был 3-х летний опыт продаж в нефте-газовой промышленности. И затем я отправила себя на полугодовые курсы английского языка в Новой Зеландии, что в корне перевернуло мои представления во многих сферах и изменило жизненный путь. Теперь я представитель компании Kiwi Education и с удовольствием буду оказывать помощь в достижении Ваших целей.

MY PHILOSOPHY

Нет ничего невозможного. Если что-то не получилось, значит, ты или не хотел, или испугался.

HOBBY

Я человек, который редко сидит на месте. Люблю проводить время активно, занимаясь спортом и путешествиями, зачастую их совмещая.

MY DREAMS

Мечтаю, чтобы мои желания все чаще становились явью, и я все больше убеждаюсь, что НЕТ НИЧЕГО НЕВОЗМОЖНОГО. Мечтаю иметь отменное здоровье, достаточно энергии и сил для исполнения желаний своих и чужих.

ELENA TURUNKINA

CLIENT MANAGER

Hello! My name is Elena and I am pleased to welcome you to our website.

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

There are only two passions in my life – music and English. And even when I graduated from the Law Academy and got an additional qualification “lawyer-interpreter” I always knew that the English was my calling and my job should be related to it anyway. I quit the law and went to Europe for TESOL course, where I studied with native speakers from England and America. I have got a TESOL certificate from Trinity College London that gives the opportunity to teach English anywhere in the world, and have successfully worked as an English teacher for children and adults until I became a part of Kiwi Education team.

MY PHILOSOPHY

Do things that inspire you! So many people are afraid to try their luck while a huge number of opportunities is passing by. Everything in our life should bring positive emotions – our job, environment, the place where we live. If not, we can change things for the better.

HOBBY

I am a very enthusiastic person. When I was a child, I did singing, now among my hobbies are dancing and sports. I also love to travel, discover new places and learn more about local people, their culture and way of living.

MY DREAMS

I wish my every day to be filled with joy, positive and harmony with the world. I also dream to keep my energy, vitality and optimism until the old age.

YULIA KAZAKULOVA

CLIENT MANAGER

Hi!
I’m somewhat of a magican: I’m the one who makes your New Zealand dreams come true.

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

Russian university graduate, specialized in Management in Construction (with honors, if it matters).
Worked as a tax inspector, a personal assistant, a PM at social entrepreneurship and IT sectors.
Lived & studied in Sweden for two years (Master of Science in Business Administration).
It doesn’t matter whether you come home after studies or keep exploring the country of your foreign educational experience, this time will change both your personality and your life.

MY PHILOSOPHY

Nothing is true, everything is possible.

HOBBY

Knowledge. I read at list one book a week and master several new skills annually.
I have been to 15 countries so far. I walked the tulip fields at the Amsterdam suburbs, explored the worlds’ best Italian restaurant at the heart of Prague, I have been a bridesmaid at an unthentic Chinese wedding in the middle of China, I got lost between Angkor Wat temples at Cambodia, and celebrated my 30th birthday at an American wedding at the seashore of North Carolina.
I should thank my fellow students from Sweden for most of these and other adventures (and now you can guess why I’m so into studying abroad).

MY DREAMS

I wish that one day when you put your children/grandchildren into bed they asked you to tell them about your own personal adventures and not a bedtime story.

I was lucky enough to start my professional career (path) with a trip across the United States during my Work&Travel programme, where I finally realised that there is no need to be afraid of taking a risk and getting out of your comfort zone – that you always need to set new horizons for yourself and follow them. Then there was a challenging, yet a very usefull experience in one of the Moscow`s leading restaurants, which taugh me more about the world standarts of service in restaurant business. My path was later followed by my work as a stewardess, to which I am most thankfull for the ability to continue the exploration of the world and for seeing some of its most remote and beautiful places.
I am currently living in Almaty, Kazakhstan. I study Management and foreign languages.

MY DREAMS

Angela Romanenko

Web Developer

Hi everyone! My name is Anzhela, and my goal is to empower Kiwi Education team to work more smoothly and efficiently by using web-technologies.

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

For more than 10 years of my professional development in IT I have been able to work as a system and web programmer, layout designer, interface designer, project and product manager, team leader and more. I started my professional career as a freelancer and had been ranked as one of the Top Freelancers of an influential Runet online marketplace. Since 2012, me and my husband have teamed up to develop several web-based products (CMS), which are still popular today. I took up my first position in New Zealand after receiving my professional degree and started working at Kiwi Education. My main goal here is workflow automation in the team.

MY PHILOSOPHY

No task is impossible. Neither in work nor in life. Everyone is free to set their limits and thus choose their own reality

HOBBY

IT has been my main passion for many years. It all began with the ][aker magazine that I had been buying since I was 12. I would read it non-stop, as soon as I got my hands on the latest issue. Then there were game clubs, and I got curious about how all this this stuff works and started programming. Apart from being in love my laptop, I adore spending time with my family, traveling, meeting people and discovering new cultures. I have also been making my childhood dream come true: I started learning to play the piano.

MY DREAMS

I would like to live to see the time when there will be no need for boundaries in the world. People will completely forget about diseases and illnesses. And maybe even escape death — by either gaining a bionic body or digitizing consciousness.
