First of all I would like to explain that my position and opinion about this profession coming from my background. I was born in Republic of Georgia (former part of USSR) on January 24,1994. On January 1995, my father was die and my mother decided to move from Georgia to Russia, because my mother had a problem with Georgian nationalists about Russian ethnicity. When we started living in Russia since my childhood I was attacked by Russian nationalists, because of my Georgian ethnicity. When I was teenager I could understand that nobody can help me and protect me from nationalist attacks. I decided to go to rally and express my political opinion against of government, especially against of Putin`s regime, because government does not protect people from nationalists and support “skinheads”. Nobody wants to hear me and understand that racism is such a terrible thing in the world. Unfortunately, I started having problem everywhere, because of my opposition political opinion. I supported such opposition leaders as Aleksey Navalny, Garry Kasparov and Boris Nemtsov, because I love them ideas of freedom country and equal opportunity to express yourself no mater who you are : black or white, guy or lesbian, baptist or muslim and etc. I had to leave Russia because of my Georgian ethnicity and opposition political opinion. I got political asylum status in the U.S on November 2016.
