big_922384831b5a84aaA young mother, trader, financial adviser and author of a book for children – it is all about Marina Zhabina, a participant of the Miss Insta Asia beauty contest coming from Khabarovsk. She managed to be top-rated from the very first days of the contest. We decided to find out what it takes to combine all the above mentioned roles.

IFX: Good day, Marina. We would like to start off by thanking you for giving us an interview. Please tell us a little about yourself.
MG: I got a degree in the field of construction and programming, however, against logic, I work in the sphere of finance. I am a financial adviser, helping people get on well with their own money.

IFX: A constructor-programmer?
MG: Yes, an engineer-constructor and programmer. My speciality is automated building design systems. To tell the truth, I do not know what made me choose a truly male profession.

IFX: How did you come to work in the financial sphere?
MG: It was a chance that brought me to the world of finance! In the age of 20 I got an idea that even though we are taught many subjects, there is a huge gap left: we lack knowledge about our money. Presently, schools and institutes are introducing disciplines developing financial literacy. I have never been happy with following the “earn-spend-earn” principle, so I started to search for relevant information and people who could share their knowledge, and eventually I found them!

IFX: And then you became one of such people…
MG: Exactly! Money is an integral part of our life. Even though people say that money cannot buy happiness, lack of money troubles makes them much happier. I am glad I succeeded in solving these troubles.

IFX: In the profile you described yourself as “a creative yet mathematically inclined person”. How do you manage to reconcile the mathematical mind with the creativity? Is such duality advantageous in life or on the contrary?
MG: Since the age of 4 I have written verse and prose, painted pictures, attended a music academy and theatre studio, took dance classes; so by the moment of entering a higher education institution I had creativity overdose. That is why I chose a technical speciality. At that time I was in love with advanced maths: I could solve three pages of logarithmic equations in one go. However inclination to creativity overruled my zest for maths: I found a job in the TV industry and spent two years managing my own project. By the way, I am presently completing a fairytale. I can’t wait for my fairytale to be published.

IFX: Please tell us more about your book.
MG: Well, the book is titled A Little Big Secret. This is a fairytale which teaches to set goals and achieve them, believing in yourself. The book is a kind of practical guide for children put as a fairytale. I am planning to present part of the released copies to Russian orphan asylums as it is especially important for children without parents to find a source of self-efficacy belief.

IFX: In your profile you also said that you are an achiever, so you have a goal-oriented lifestyle. What is your main achievement in life so far?
MG: I am proud of everything I have today. In every sphere I am engaged I show results highly assessed by others. For instance, there are no people of my age holding a leading position in my professional field. Top managers thought it was impossible. But I did it, even though I do not attach prior significance to having a job because I have a year-and-a half old son. So, this is the achievement I am the most proud of. My friends keep wondering how I manage everything: raising a child, showing excellent results at work, looking after myself, cooking meals three times a day and exploring something new.

IFX: How did you learn about the Miss Insta Asia beauty contest? Why did you decide to participate in it?
MG: I began cooperation with InstaForex Company at the end of the last contest season. Then I decided to take part in the contest if there is another season. I am a woman, apparently, a beautiful woman. And I am a trader; I would be happy to employ the main prize in trading. The victory would bring me closer to the goal of publishing my book. I guess it is not worth mentioning charity which I do it regularly. Showing myself is not a real motive as well: there are many other ways to do it. I just came to win!

IFX: You also donate money to charity, don’t you?
MG: Yes, I do, for a long time. It is quite simple. I regularly transfer funds to accounts of reliable charity funds, sometimes to accounts of certain children in need for expensive treatment. It was a shock for me to learn how many children actually need support. Every little helps! This method is more effective than finding a person or an organization to pay for the treatment of someone’s child.

IFX: Our contest is called Miss Insta Asia. Marina, what does Asia mean to you?
MG: I was born and presently live in the Asian part of the Russian Federation. But real Asia is something more than just a place on the globe. Asia means seducing eyes of Indian women, wisdom and diligence of Chinese people, honour of Japanese samurai and passion of Caucasians. Asia implies a numerous contrasts. Moreover, Asia is home for 4 out of 7 billion people of the world.

IFX: To your mind, are women coming from the Asian part of Russia and from Asia as such different from European women?
MG: In my opinion, Asian women are true women in the ancient meaning of this word. They are real domestic goddesses. As for European women, they are mostly emancipated and independent.

IFX: What about you? Which group do you belong?
MG: I am fortunate to have such a good man beside as my husband. He makes me a true woman. After all, a woman’s greatest strength is her weakness. And I can be weak!

IFX: What was the starting point of your forex trading way?
MG: It was my desire to open up to the opportunities life provides. There was a certain period when I was considering all offers I got. I went through a lot of offers; Forex persisted.

IFX: What is your current attitude to trading on the foreign exchange market? Do you regard it as a permanent job or rather a hobby?
MG: This is my job which makes most part of my income. Besides, I am now strengthening partner relationships with InstaForex Company: I am planning to open a representative office in the city I live in.

IFX: It will be our pleasure to cooperate with you. Thank you very much for the interview. We wish you luck in both the contest and trading!

big_78a8e13f89e61418The third season of the unique beauty contest Miss Insta Asia has started recently getting more and more interesting with each stage. Traders close their terminals more often to open the contest home page. Every day we can see new beautiful participants and more photos.  The enormous amount of comments points at the unbelievable activity of fans. In the last month of 2011 we had the interview with one of the leaders of our contest’s open voting. This girl represents the Northern Capital of Russia – St. Petersburg. Please welcome Darya Shlykova.

IFX: Hello Dariya. First of all, we would like to thank you for your attention to our contest and your participation in it! The first question is very common – why did you register for Miss Insta Asia contest and was it the first experience for you?
DS: It was my husband who advised me to take part in the contest. For me it was for the first time.

IFX: How did your friends react when they had learned that you were going to participate in the beauty contest?
DS: They wished me luck.

IFX: Let us talk about Forex. What was your first acquaintance with currency trading and why did you decide to trade? What are the main advantages of Forex trading to your mind?
DS: Accidentally I saw the advertisement in the Internet and I got curious. Firstly, you have to make decisions yourself, secondly, there is no such a concept as “working day” and, finally, this is very exciting.

IFX: Do you think there are some specific qualities of women that could help them to be more successful on Forex than men?
DS: I think that there is no difference whether you are a man or a woman. The personal qualities, self-discipline and appetite for learning are the key factors.

IFX: What is your main difficulty in trading and how do you manage it?
DS: There is a saying: “Cut the losses let your profit grow”. Unfortunately, we cannot always follow this simple rule.

IFX: In your questionnaire you said that you like football. Some might say that Forex and football are not for women. Do you have any objections?
DS: Well, many men, many minds. I think that you should not divide interests between men and women. As to football, I like it so much for its energetic and excitement.

IFX: There are some quite old-fashioned films in the list of your favorites; you say that you like classical music; Dostoyevsky and Conan Doyle can hardly be named our contemporaries as well. Do you also follow such conservative strategies in trading or do you like experiments?
DS: I think I like experiments.

IFX: What is Forex for you? Is it a place where you can gain money or is it a hobby?
DS: A hobby.

IFX: Why would you like to go back in 1935? Why are you so interested in this period?
DS: 30-es were the turning point for our country: new ideals emerged; some concrete objectives were defined leading us towards the “happy future”. People believed that everything is possible.

IFX: Do you always follow the changes in rating? What can you say about other participants? Do you think someone deserves the victory more than others?
DS: No, not very often. It is quite difficult to give a preference to one as a lot of worthy and interesting girls take part in the contest.

IFX: You said that you wish to bring up at least 3 children. So the family life is more important for you than contests, charts, orders, etc.?
DS: Yes, surely home, kindness and the support from your nearest and dearest are much more important than any success. What are all our achievements for if there is no one to share with?

IFX: Do you feel tired from men’s attention? I’m sure that you are always chased by smiles and interested looks?
DS: Thank you but I do not pay any attention to it, I am absolutely happy in my life!

IFX: Many think that December is a magic month. Do you feel content that you were acknowledged Miss December? Do you think that it will help you in final voting? Or would you like your victory to be associated with a summer month?
DS: I am quite content though I like summer very much. But it seems to me that December is a magic time and everyone would like to believe in miracle.

IFX: What would you like to tell our readers for goodbye?
DS: I wish love and prosperity to everyone.

FX: Darya, we thank you for such interesting answers and wish you success in 2012!
