Let me introduce myself. My name is Alexander, Alec for short. My full name is Alexander Sergeyevich Orlov. Orlov is my surname, Alexander is my first name and Sergeyevich is my patronymic. I am nearly nineteen – next Thursday is my birthday.
Now I am a first-year student of a law department of South Ural State University. I have been waiting for this moment since I was a little boy. I am so happy! I passed my exams! My results were at the 3rd place in the whole list of applicants! I am a student now! I will gain the new special knowledge I need to be a human rights protector. My studying at one of the best Universities in Russia will give me an opportunity to continue my science work on the problem of human rights, which I have started at school. I will reach the new level of research.
My life is so busy again! I have a lot of classes at my faculty, and then I go to the different departments to attend my course of English. I am going to get a diploma of translator. My knowledge of foreign languages will help me in my job, because I will cooperate with colleagues from different countries. In spite of my busy study at the university I have time for my science and social work. I participate in every student conference; my reports take prize-winning places. Now I work at the law consultation as an assistant of barrister and give free consultations to people.
My parents have two more children besides me. Thus I have got an elder brother and a younger sister. My sister Helen is just out of school. She is seventeen. She is very fond of music and her dream is to become a pianist.
My brother, whose name is Michael, is eight years my senior. He is twenty-seven already. He is a builder. He is married and has a family of his own. They are four in the family. He has a wife and two children – a son and a daughter. They are twins. His wife`s name is Nina. She is a surgeon by profession. They are not in Chelyabinsk. They are in the Far East.
My parents are not old at all. Father is fifty, and Mother is three years his junior. My grandfather is not a pensioner, though he is over seventy. He is still full of life and energy. Our grandparents are fond of us.
