It’s me, Noya, same girl who opened this blog 4 years ago, but 4 years wiser 🙂
Four years past since I wrote this “About me” page for my blog Noyaland. Feels like four hundred years ago:) Right now I am already in 5th grade in Guadalupe Elementary School, San Jose, California. I haven’t written in my blog for a long time because I am very busy with fencing that I do, school, dancing and lots of other fun things. I really love to fence and I have been fencing for 3 years now. My parents run a fencing club in Campbell, California. I have made a lot of friends there and they are really nice. And exciting news is that I got a labradoodle , chocolate sweet dog and his name is Athos. I like to sing, dance and read. And I still enjoy a lot writing.
I wanted to add this updated intro and probably get back to writing in Noyaland.
Hope to write more often now. Here is my new and updated story about all I love to do being 4 years older: read here.

My name is Noya. I am six and a half. I like icecream. I like to read and write stories. I like to dance. I speak Russian and English.. I have a garden. I like to go to school. I like to kiss my Mom. I help my Mom a lot.
I have a bunkbed. I have a bunk bed because I have a twin brother Adam. I sleep on the top! Actually we have two bunk beds in our house. The second one is for Mika and Daniel. They are my little sister and brother and they are twins too.
I’ve got a new present. It is a hot pink diary with a pink pen. Now I write in it everything I see.
Santa brought me this year a camera. It was pink. It made so bad pictures. My Dad brought me a black camera. Now I have a real camera like my Mom. I like to make new pictures.
I write my stories with pen. I type them really slow. I want to be a writer. Or a Vet. May be also a kids’ doctor.
A NOTE FROM MOM
Hello, I am Noya’s Mom. I’d like to add few remarks to my little writer’s story (or may be to Noya’s first resume).
We all in our family are passionate about books. Our favorite time of the day is a night storytelling. All four kids are cuddling around me or Dad and listening to different fairy-tales, fantasizing themselves as brave heroes, powerful magicians and goodhearted fairies. This love to the books transformed last year into Noya’s desire to create her own little stories. She has a simple camera in her bag and she is shooting pictures all the time. Inspired by our family blog 6Cherries she asked for her own space for writing.
All stories are original with her punctuation and style (with only exception of some help with spelling of difficult words when she asks, but then I guess shortly her command of English will surpass ours 🙂 ). All photos also are taken by Noya. First she writes texts in her pink diary, and then types it into the blog (quite a slow process at this time, so this “About Me” she finished in two days). She is so proud to start her own blog, which she called NoyaLand. I am happy to support this wonderful journey of creativity!
