Today, she holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Accounting from the American University in Bulgaria. Currently, she’s working on the Graduate Certificate in Taxation form the Southern New Hampshire University.

She used to play professionally table tennis during her high school and university years and has participated in tournaments inside and outside of Turkmenistan. In the past six years of her life, she has been to seven countries, three islands and she speaks five languages – Russian, Turkish, Turkmen, Bulgarian and some basic Spanish.
