I am a girl from small Europe country, near the Baltic sea- Lithuania. Few years ago me and my fiance moved out to live in USA.
My name is Jurate- origin of the name is Lithuanian. It was a story about queen of the Baltic sea- Mermaid Jurate, who fell in love with human being- fisherman Kastytis. It's like Romeo and Juliet love story, just Lithuanian version :)

How I've got my nickname Juja?.. My niece, when she was a little girl, couldn't pronounce my name, she thought about my short name and started to call me Juja. It just was a lot easier for her :) A correct pronunciation of my nick name is [ju:ja].
A few years ago I graduated University of Technology and acquired a degree in Industrial Textile technologies and design. After graduation I worked in one of the biggest in Lithuania textile companies as an international sales manager.
All my life textile, art and creating were familiar to me and I love working hard, creating, dreaming. I like doing everything what's nice and makes me or anybody else feeling good and beautiful!
