Choosing an Occupation

   I originally became interested in the law during my 9th form when I realized that my skills as a writer, speaker, and leader — as well as my powers of logic — would probably serve me well in a legal career.
   That is why I entered an optional class where I could have lessons on law twice a week. All that I have done and experienced in my studying of the basic aspects of the law has further stimulated and reinforced my interest in the law, especially international obligations and public law, and my determination to pursue a legal career.
   Studying to be a lawyer represents the fulfilment of one of my longest held dreams.
   Whatever I could do as a lawyer to help people who are victimised by unscrupulous businessmen, as well as their own ignorance of the law, would give me a great satisfaction.
   The duty of the lawyer is not only to punish people for various crimes: from espionage to serial murder and terrorism, but they must do their best to prevent crimes, to fight against evil in our society.
   The lawyers should help those people, who committed an error (broke the law) to find the right road in their life. Judges can hand down a death sentence for murder in our country. I feel strongly that the death sentence should be abolished. The lawyers protect the rights and legal interests of citizens, institutions and organisations.
   I want to help people, businesses to solve their problems, I want to help everybody to know the rules that we all have to get along. I think that the profession of a lawyer is one of the most important in the law-governed state, which we are creating now.

Выбор профессии

   Будучи в 9-м классе, я вначале заинтересовался правом, когда понял, что мои навыки, оратора и лидера, а так же сила моей логики, будут хорошо служить мне в юридической карьере.
   Именно поэтому я поступил в специализированный класс, где два раза в неделю у меня были уроки по праву. Все, что я сделал и постиг в изучении основных аспектов закона, далее стимулировало и укрепило мой интерес к праву, особенно международные обязательства и публичное право, и мое решение сделать юридическую карьеру.
   Стать адвокатом — это исполнение моей самой давней мечты.
   Чтобы я ни сделал как адвокат, чтобы помочь людям, которые являются жертвами недобросовестных бизнесменов, а также собственного незнания закона, это принесет мне большое удовлетворение.
   Обязанностью адвоката является не только наказание людей за различные преступления: от шпионажа до серийного убийства и терроризма, но он также должен приложить все усилия, чтобы предотвратить преступления, бороться против зла в нашем обществе.
    Адвокаты должны помочь тем людям, которые совершили ошибку (нарушили закон) найти правильную дорогу в жизни. В нашей стране судьи могут отменить смертный приговор за убийство. Адвокаты защищают права и юридические интересы граждан, учреждений и организаций.
   Я хочу помогать людям и фирмам решать проблемы, я хочу помогать всем узнать законы, по которым должны жить все. Я думаю, что профессия адвоката — одна из самых важных в правовом государстве, которое мы создаем сейчас.

My Future Profession   Finishing school is the beginning of the independent life for millions of school leavers. Many roads are opened before them: vocational and technical schools, institutes and universities. But it is not an easy thing to choose a profession out of more than 2,000 existing in the world.

Appearance: Parts of the Face   People who can't hear often learn to understand a spoken language with their eyes. They watch the mouth of the person talking and follow the movement of his lips.

The bigger your forehead is, the more intelligent you are supposed to b

I cannot say that I have a lot of spare time because it takes me much time to get ready for my exams to the University and learning exams at school.

I can sit hours and hours communicating with my friends through the Internet. As far a
