Alexandra was born in a «chess» family. Her father Yuriy is the international master, a coach in the chess school. Her mother Larisa is a candidate to masters of sport on chess. When Alexandra was little, she was busy with dances and table-tennis, but her interest to chess and discovered skills made all other interests move aside.
According to her words, she has played chess since her 6 years old and cannot imagine her life without them. She does not want to look into the future, what will happen in several years, but set several aims in chess for herself and tries to achieve them, as the 15-year-old sportswoman tells.
Once falling in love with chess, one is not able to forget about them. The main component of success is industriousness. Everyday lessons during 7 hours and, of course, talent of the girl led to the first awards. After that there were victories and prize places on the open championship in Czechia, the team competitions of Russia, the international chess tournament for women and the championship in Europe.
In spite of her amazing talent, in life Alexandra is a calm, shy girl with charming smile and at that very serious at the chessboard. She communicates with journalists not much, because she is very shy. More often her father speaks with them. He is her main coach.
