Now she gives me a pleasant chance to play for my home club, which I have watched since my childhood and acquaintance with basketball. I am insanely glad to be here, being already a conscious and adult person. With the experience gained, you look at Krasnoyarsk from a completely different angle and begin to enjoy its endless beauties.

- For me, the transition to VTB League is an important and very interesting breath of fresh air. It's worth a lot to play in the best league in the country. I appreciate this chance and will try to make the most of it.

Constantly progress as a player and just a person on the court, and outside for the team. Every day, improve your skills in some specific aspects, be it defense, attack or tactics. Use every workout as a chance to get better.

Team chemistry is what is important, the most important goals will be achieved after it - victories, for the sake of them, we play basketball.

- Yes, there was an injury that required surgical intervention. I was lucky and my doctors turned out to be people who were the best in the country in this specialization. Now I feel great and completely ready for the upcoming season. It’s not that I recovered, on the contrary, I became even better and stronger. I have made progress, both physically and mentally.
