Persons of the Month – Elizaveta Kolotvinova & Dmitry Fomin

Date of material placement: 31-10-2013, 10:14.

One of the brightest events of this month was, for sure, the already traditional contest Miss & Mister Freshman of NCFU-2013. Thirteen couples representing all the NCFU Institutes, and foreign students, contested the titles, and each participant got an award. Today we are telling you about the students who did not just get the titles of Miss & Mister Extravagance yet also won the Internet-vote. Please, meet Elizaveta Kolotvinova & Dmitry Fomin of Institute for Information Technologies & Telecommunications.

 

- Had you known each other before the contest?

- No, we met through the group supervising teachers. We belong to different groups and never met in the first month of studies. However, the supervisors selected us to join the contest. That was quite unexpected as there was little time left to get prepared, two weeks only to get to know each other and become true partners. I am a responsible person and I was anxious I would not manage. However the idea was so good I just agreed, - Liza is telling.

Dima by then had already become known through sports results joining the contest for the Rector’s Cup. He is also training to join the Ice Show to be held soon.

- And before that had you had any experience joining such events?

Liza: when in school I always was part of various contests. I have been practicing dance since childhood. Yet I had never attended any couple dance contests. Dima is much more experienced here.

Dima: I took up ball-room dancing when in high school. I also tried to be a model. Working with a partner for me is much harder than just being alone. This is some other sort of responsibility, you have to think for the two of you, have to make it so that your partner likes it too, not just you.

- And what was the toughest part while training for the contest?

- The toughest part was to get ready for the creativity show, - the students say together. Besides, we also had to bring the dance performance up to a certain level, learn some new moves. The most difficult and the most important one is to have mutual understanding with the partner, to be able to support each other, to listen to each other. Through all this our supervisors and friends from performance groups were there helping us.

- But this is the contest that proved the most memorable, - Dima is saying. In the beginning we changed the roles – I was disguised as a lady and Liza acted as a man, which was my first experience of that kind. That was real fun. Hope the audience enjoyed it too.

- I had to master the art of runway walking, - Liza is telling. Here Dima’s experience as a model came in really handy. He just told me what to do. Through all this time I was surprised with his self-confidence, on the one hand, and felt supported, on the other.

And Dima is self-confident and determined indeed. Apart from active involvement into sports and extracurricular activities he also a student at two institutes, full-time, by the way.

- Was it a disappointment not to win the Miss & Mister Freshman of NCFU-2013 title?

- Of course, we wanted to win but the participation itself gave us a lot, - Dima is answering. First, we met a lot of new friends. WE keep in touch with guys from other institutes sharing our impressions both from academic life and from other activities. Second, the contest allowed us expressing ourselves also seeing what we are up to. We are still new people at the University, and such events help you join the large student family easier.

- But you won the Internet-vote. Who supported you?

- We had a lot of support and it was not only our friends. Even people from other countries voted for us so you could say this vote was international. We are grateful to everyone for the support.

 

Our heroes have been NCFU students for two months only now yet they have already become well-known not in their groups only but at the NCFU at large. And even though they are only trying to see what the NCFU can offer them they already serve a good example of active and talented students.

Don’t you be shy, join our contests, invent, create, and perform! Our next success story may be about you.
