Hello, my name is Artem, I’ve been living in Prague for 9 years now, I moved from Kumertau, a small town in the south of Ural mountains. The last year I didn’t apply for university, but I studied English to get a CAE certificate, which probably was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made, because my improvement was enormous and also I met a lot of cool people there. This September I will start studying Civil engineering at Czech Technical University. My hobbies are cooking (especially some healthy food), playing drums and reading classical literature.
Hometown: Kumertau, Russian federation
Fun Fact about Hometown: The name of my hometown is in Bashkir, it is a language of the ethnic group, which lives in that area. It literally means «Charcoal Mountain», because in the past there was a rich deposit of that resource.
Occupation: Student & Community Manager at Locus Workspace
Field of Study: Civil engineering
Why did you decide to study civil engineering?
It is an interesting question. My uncle works in the biggest stock company in Russia, which carries on the business of extraction, production, transport, and sale of natural gas. I talked to him a lot and then I just realised how big potential civil engineering has. Also I like to see the physical consequences of my work and this is probably the reason why I’ve chosen this field of study.
Why did you decide to work at Locus?
I found Locus accidentally. The priority of choosing a job was an English speaking community and environment, which I found here in Locus. Also there is huge space for self-improvement and this is what I am looking for in my life.
What are some of your goals for this job?
My goal is to meet a lot of different people, who you can’t meet somewhere else. Usually those people are not very extrovert and meeting them in real life seems to me impossible. And I think that Locus is a perfect place for realisation of my ideas, which also can help other people around me.
What kind of responsibilities do you have as a community manager?
My main responsibility will be taking care of our members so they can feel like a big family. I have a lot of ideas about events we can organize here and I’m looking forward to spending a lot of good time with our members.
Did you already have an idea of what a coworking space was before you joined Locus?
I didn’t even know what coworking is, so for me it was something new. But I am very surprised how cool it is.
