2 . My native town - the center of ore mining

: 1 Personal identification

From the very start I should say, that it is not an easy thing to speak about myself, as it is hard to have a look at yourself from aside, but at the same time who knows you better than you yourself do?

First of all I would like to speak about my family, my parents, who play a great role in my life. I am an only child in the family, so I have been paid much attention. My father is 51 years old. He is a well-educated person and he has experience in many fields. That is why it is always interesting to communicate with him, he usually tells a lot of exciting stories. My mother is 46. She is a good-looking woman. I admire her character. My mother spends a lot of time in the kitchen, she is fond of cooking. We always find out new recipes, try them, and invert new unusual names. I am very lucky that I have got such wonderful parents and of course I love them very much.

Now, I think, it is time to speak about myself. My name is Alexandra. I was born on the 24 th of July 1990 in the town of Krivyi Rih, where I live now. I am a student of Krivyi Rih Technical University. I can say that I am friendly, kind, generous and honest. I am brought up and have good manners. There are many things in our life I like and some I dislike. I like my friends. I like to laugh and joke. I have got a sense of humor. It means I understand humor and appreciate it. I can keep secrets, I like to give advice to my friends. I dont respect rude, selfish and foolish people. I hate when people lie and cant keep their promises. I try to deal with honest and intelligent people, who can always help in a difficult situation. I havent got any special hobby, like collecting something, but I love pets. I had a cat and now Im planning to take the puppy.

Perhaps it is a small part of what I can tell about myself. I hope you’ll have a positive impression about me.


2 . My native town - the center of ore mining

Kryvyi Rig is a modern industrial city. It is situated on the banks of the Saksagan and Ingulets rivers in the south east of Ukraine. It covers an area of 500 square kilometers and its length is over 100 kilometers.

Kryviy Rig was founded in 1775. At first it was a small settlement of no industrial importance. The industrial development began in the 19-th century after the discovery of rich iron ore deposits. The former small settlement has become a large industrial town. Today about 700,000 people live and work in Kryviy Rig .

Now it is an important economic region in central Ukraine, specializing in iron ore mining and the steel industry. It is arguably the main iron ore region of Eastern Europe. The region possesses major deposits of iron ore and some other metallurgical ores. To exploit them, several large mining companies were founded here. Most of them are located in Kryvyi Rih itself.

The largest industrial enterprise is the Arcelor Mittal. Its production is known and valued all over the world. Other ore companies supply their raw materials to either Arcelor Mittal or steel mills outside the region. Steel companies of the region are controlled by either the Private Group or the SCM. There are also many other industrial enterprises, among which there are many mines, quarries, ore and chemical combines, etc. All these enterprises make a great contribution to the economy of Ukraine.
