My name is Tina and I was born on 12.6.1991 in Ljubljana. I'm 18 years old. I am visiting the third year of Secondary School of Administration. In elementary school I trained karate for four years. I stopped, when I started to attend high school. In high school I was practising hip hop for some time. In the future I intend to study law. I wish to do a doctorate in law.
If I fail to study law, I will study economics. I want to become a successful lawyer, and start my own business. One day I want to become a politician, and run for a mayor of Ljubljana.
I want to travel all over the world. I want to visit Bulgaria, Spain, Turkey, Greece, tropical islands, Russia … I want to learn many languages: Bulgarian, Albanian, Spanish, Italian ... I want to have two children. I don't want to have children until I am financially independent. I want to give my children the best life possible. I want a similar relationship with my children to the one I have with my parents. I will not give up until I make all my dreams come true.

My name is Kristian, I'm a 17-year-old boy. I will be 18 in 2 month's time. I live in a chicken-shaped country, called Slovenia, more precisely in Vrhnika. I'm visiting high school (Secondary School of Administration) and will become an economics assistant. After finishing high school, I would like to succeed in managment. From all sports, I prefer football, I've been training it for 10 years. In addition to football, I like travelling and exploring new places, but most of all, getting to know new people AND PARTYING A LOT.

My name is Mateja Oresic. I was born in Ljubljana. In those years me and my family lived in Menges. My mother`s name is Irena and my father is Radovan. I have 2 half-brothers. One is 33 years old (he is 15 years older than me), his name is Gorazd, and the other one is 27, his name is Radek. Radek and Gorazd are the sons from my parents' previous marriages. In Menges we lived in a flat. When I was 4, I visited a kindergarten in Menges and after that a primary school in Mengeš until 5th class. Then we moved to Trojane in a two-storied house. On the upper part of the house, I live with my mom, downstairs live my brother, with his girlfriend and 2 sons. After we moved, I started to go to the primary school in Brdo pri Lukovici. I finished that school with a grade B. After primary school I visited a grammar school in Celje, and I was living in a hall of residence in Celje, but I dropped out after 6 months because of personal reasons. I worked for the next 6 months in Trojane, in the kitchen of a restaurant washing dirty dishes, which may sound easy, but it was quite difficult. Then I started to visit a high school in Ljubljana named SUAS (Secondary School of Administration). The first year I finished with a grade A ,and in the second year I had a grade B. Now I am in the third year. I have high hopes for this year because I have very big expectations for college.
So yeah that is all about my life, I hope you'll enjoy reading it.
