Question: Hello, my name is Télvio André, I am Brazilian, twenty four years old, I've always been a good student, with ease in learning. Right at the beginning of the school year in school, my parents bought used books and I started to read all the books in my house. Sometimes this made me uneasy at school, where learning is very slow. However I have not forgotten the importance of studies in my life, and I tried to keep get good grades. I always dreamed of being a doctor, and know new cultures, study other languages, but the conditions were not favorable for this. Because in Brazil the reality of the studies is somewhat different from the others countries. Throughout high school I was reading about computing, as well as: hardware knowledge, information security, operating systems and programming, until I discovered Linux. I was interested in knowing about how works the operation of a used computer that my dad bought. When I finis! hed high school I had to work, and I realized that all made sense because I studied knowledge of operating systems and I got my first job after passing a knowledge test. I got the post of administrator: 12 linux servers as trainee. In other way I had not stopped studying because I knew that my real interest is not this area. I read several books eg books on economics, politics, astronomy, history, biology, anatomy, mathematics, agricultural science, neuroscience, alchemy .. To understand more about all, because I am very interested in any kind of knowledge for the sake of understanding: how everything works? And exercise my mind to draw further own conclusions of the contents through what others might describe. The free higher education in Brazil are full time and this prevents me from working. The private colleges are too expensive making impossible the continuation of my career. Then I ended up choosing to do a search for exams and a faculty of Mechanical Engineering. I'v! e spent in the two tests I did, one of Brazil in the best coll! ege of engineering mechanics, and another at a private college. I started the evening course in private college and sometimes I was missing classes to study at home because of my habit of studying alone. As also already knew about the matter of the first half, I could advance my time studying of the fifth and the sixth semester. I had the opportunity to meet several Russian friends and always had good news about life in Russia. Even as knowledge of the prestige of Russian universities in Brazil. I left my college and I'm just working, because I will not give up my dreams of becoming a doctor. Six months ago I started searching for universities in Russia, so far I did not know English, and I started to study. Today I found this university and I know enough English to write this letter and talk too. I write to you a little of my life history and say it's a dream to get a university place there. I do not know Russian so far, but I'm sure I can learn in six months as well as En! glish. My goal writing this is an opportunity to study, I can do whatever it takes to get it. I read this website and not got information about the possibility of studying no cost. Now that you know a little of my story I would like to know a little of what I need to do to accomplish my goal within my situation. So I can use the knowledge acquired until now in the medical field, wich It is the only activity that really will bring me joy besides studying.
