Natalia Zhizhko bio


After high school, Natalia came to Russia and enrolled in the biological faculty at the university. She had no intention of staying in Russia at first, but a lot happened while she was studying. Zizko studied floristry, obtained a job, and started working with flowers. Of course, when she hit a certain 'limit' in her career in Tomsk, the topic of continuing work arose. As a result, Natalia relocated to Moscow, a city with more prospects for growth, travel, and employment.

Natalia's first competitive success took place in Kyiv, where she yearned and desired to show what she represented as a creative person. In the first contest, she was driven by absolute self-doubt, but she still managed to kill it with her designs. It was at this point that there was no going back for her, and flowers became her life, literally.
