Our interview with Ms. Darejan Shukakidze ended on this warm note – “I was fascinated with volleyball in my teenage years. I played in Tbilisi volleyball team until 10th grade and was even invited to join the national volleyball team of Georgia. I, together with my teammates, exercised for 2 hours 3 days a week. Don’t take it as a boast, but coach used to call me a "queen of volleyball" because of athletic abilities. Unfortunately, after I enrolled at university, I stopped pursuing active sports – I could not balance my studies with sports in my student years. I’m still an active fan and viewer of volleyball. I have never missed European, and World Championship matches in volleyball. I remember my teenage years during every broadcast. I also really love traveling. I’ve visited almost every region of Georgia, albeit I haven’t been to Khevsureti yet, hopefully, will visit one day. I’ve traveled to 5 countries abroad. Saint Petersburg and Dresden left a very deep impression on me. The coexistence of National Center of Surgery and I began 44 years ago, when I just finished the institute. I used to work as a librarian in the library of the clinic, later as the chief of the scientific library and now – in the archives. I don’t know and can't even imagine how my life would develop without National Center of Surgery! I will always be grateful to our clinic for loyal friends and beloved work it has given me”.
