Kolya has been waiting for a long time for me to write about him. He is very attentive and caring in regards to kids who are younger than him. He is independent: he is trusted to do some groceries. He knows daily schedule and manages to coordinate its realization. For instance, if kids have difficulties in getting lunch Kolya is there to remind about the plan.
I will be honest, I have never heard so many personal compliments from one man as I hear from Kolya: “You are our queen”, “I admire you!”, “You are our pretty lady, you have to be carried!”, “Yes, boss I’m listening to you!”
While a lot of our project participants of “Employment center” are performing work silently it is impossible in case with Kolya. No matter what he does, he comments everything which takes place around and feels that it is necessary to evaluate everything. He knows everything about the work of the center and about the events which take place in it.
Kolya is the best sales agent for selling souvenirs. Moreover, he is not only trying to sell the souvenirs, but he also tells about the authors of works, on occasion he can bring the authors and try to explain technologies used for making these crafts. This morning he was outraged and we could not figure out why he was upset. As it turned out Roma (our vendor at the souvenir store) left a box in the dressing room in which income from selling souvenirs was stored. When Kolya saw it he exclaimed: “How can you leave the box like this? There is cash in there!”
After lunch at the cooking class (social household orientation) Kolya cooked fruit salad and called it “Fruit dream”. He is dreaming for Marat Ospanov to visit “Kenes”.
