According to established traditions, parents create the basis for the life and further development of their children. This is the law of nature. And not only nature, but also human civilization. Inna Druz is a well-known figure in the information space. And a worthy daughter of her father.
Childhood and youth
Success in life requires different conditions and attributes. It is very important to be born at the right time and place. And also skillfully take advantage of the opportunities provided. Inna Aleksandrovna Druz was born on June 26, 1979 in an unusual Soviet family. Parents lived in the city of Leningrad, which was considered the capital of provincial customs. His father, a systems engineer by profession, taught most of his life in technical schools. Mother worked as a doctor in a city clinic.
It is important to note that the head of the family took part in the famous intellectual game “What? Where? When? (ChGK). Intellectual and polymath, he was very attentive to raising his daughter. Starting from the age of three months, Irina listened to fairy tales that her father read aloud to her. Reading was interspersed with listening to classical pieces of music. The girl at an early age learned to read herself. At a certain stage of development, she liked books about Lenin. They were easy to read, and everything in them was clear.
When Inna was seven years old, she was enrolled in a school with a physics and mathematics bias. She studied well. She took part in the olympiads in exact sciences. I always found a common language with classmates. Classes in sports clubs attracted her. The girl, imitating her father, loved intellectual games. The ability to think logically surprised not only peers, but also teachers. When Inna was twelve years old, her father first took her with him to a game in the ChGK. They did not pay much attention to her, since most of the participants in the game were not much older.
After leaving school, Inna decided to get higher education at the Department of Informatics and Applied Mathematics at the St. Petersburg University of Economics. The girl showed outstanding abilities and received high marks. As part of an international student exchange program between specialized educational institutions, she studied at the universities of Paris-Dauphine and Grenoble for several semesters. After receiving her diploma, Inna accepted the invitation and began working in the corporate finance department of the Industrial and Construction Bank in St. Petersburg.
According to the current charter, a member of the famous casino club “What? Where? When? anyone can. But on one condition - you need to show high results in sports games that are held in clubs throughout the country. Inna Druz came to the game as a team member when she was fifteen years old. This happened in 1994. The team captain was Alexey Blinov. On the same day, according to the results of the game, the girl was awarded a very important award - a red jacket. The owner of such a jacket becomes an “immortal” member of the club.
For several years, Inna played in her father's team. She was fortunate enough to contribute to the victory at the World ChGC Championship held in 2002 in the sunny city of Baku. Despite the workload at his main job, Druz visits the intellectual casino twice a week. Over time, the participants in the game began to maintain relationships with each other outside the club. It is interesting to note that all the money won is divided between the team members strictly equally by six.
Achievements and personal life
To actively and effectively participate in the games of the club, each member of the team has to adhere to a strict regime. If a person has misunderstandings at work or in the family, then one should not expect high results from him. Inna knows how to control herself, to concentrate in a timely manner and to be distracted from external stimuli. These abilities help both in play and in personal life. In 2003, according to the results of the winter season, Druz received the "Crystal Owl". This prestigious prize is worth a lot. And two years later she was awarded the Cup of the Governor of St. Petersburg.
In 2006, Inna Druz married Mikhail Pliskin. This did not prevent her from receiving the Club Association “What? Where? When?" in the "Best Question of the Year" nomination. Changes in personal life did not affect the performance of the game. At work, too, everything went well. My husband worked as a programmer. My wife was engaged in teaching at her home university. In 2008, the young couple had a daughter, Alice. Three years later, another girl named Alina.
Moving to America
Every family has its own life circumstances. In 2015, Mikhail Pliskin was offered a lucrative contract by a computer company from California. Many specialists from Russia live and work in this American state. After extensive consideration and analysis, the couple decided that the opportunity should be seized. Inna initially announced that she did not intend to become a housewife. Then my grandmother came to the rescue, who agreed to babysit the granddaughters.
Inna honestly admits that the adaptation took place not without difficulties. But all official and unofficial procedures were carried out as usual. After a while, she found a job. For this, an experienced manager and psychologist sent her resume to one company, and passed a fierce competition. A year later, she was offered more preferable working conditions. Children are the most troublesome and worrisome. One of the problems is that they start to forget the Russian language.
