🇬🇧English is one of the most important languages in the world. If you are able to speak English, you will find yourself with plenty of opportunities internationally. You will gain knowledge about other countries' culture and most importantly, you will have opportunities to go out of your comfort zone, which means you will have higher chance of success. GoUni tells inspirational story about a woman whose life changed because of English. Her name is Natalia Vodianova. 💃🏼



Natalia Vodianova is a Russian supermodel. Her nickname on catwalk is Supernova.

She was born in 1982 in a town not so far away from Moscow, Russia. She was a regular girl. Her parents were divorced, and she stayed with her mum. They lived together with her younger sister who was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy or CP. Natalia needed to help her mum earned a living by selling food products on the streets of Russia, making ends meet. She started working since she was 11.

However, the agent told her that before she was able to move to Paris, to became a model, she needed to be able to speak English within 3 months. Given a short time, she was able to achieve it. She speaks fluent English thanks to her ambition and perseverance at that time. 😎
