Mykhailo NOSA – a teacher who is married to journalism
Despite the Transcarpathian origin Mykhailo Nosa always stands out from the local journalistic fraternity. The desire for extra gloss and style, excessive politeness, knowledge of official communication protocols and techniques - all these qualities, are not very typical to demonstrative democratic local community which is inherent in the main editor of one of the oldest historical newspapers of Transcarpathia.
- I always thought that my mother picked me among all the sisters and brothers. I did not know why, but I was sure: she loved me the most. I was the only from 6 in the family, who was studied music in the midst of agricultural troubles and had a rest in a children's camp... When I was going to study in Russia, my mother went to our regional center in Tyachiv and dressed me as a European dandy. I will never forget that coat and scarf!
- When during the documents admission entrance commission found out that we were from Transcarpathia, we were told: ‘You have a lot of people there who sing beautifully! Let sing us something.' ‘And we sang... ‘Winged swings’ by Krylatov... In general, we did not feel any particular inconvenience in connection with the origin I even remember with special warmth that time...
Perhaps pedagogical education, based on the tact that is necessary for communication with little children is the main reason of Mykhailo’s hipper non-conflict nature. Together with the unique ability of steady mountain people to survive appears a special phenomenon of communicability and its ability of ‘inclusion’ in the new areas and projects.
- My first clash with journalism happened in Moscow. That time we, young boys in search of work came to satellite television: we prepared information on the type of information agency there. But the most interesting experience I gained in Kiev, working in the newspaper that specialized in culture. It was there where I managed to meet interesting actors and directors.
But still, gloss, obtained in communication with the theatrical beau monde did not erase passionate commitment to the family and Carpathian traditions. With particular trepidation and touching love Mykhailo speaks about his family. He does not miss any book updates, follows the theatrical posters. He finds an opportunity to visit theater and media scene festivals of the country. In short, every day proves that to live in the province and to be a provincial - things are not linked!
- Among the numerous interesting and very famous people I have always singled out for myself one acquaintance, acquaintance with poetess Rimma Kazakova. We met in Moscow, than she visited Transcarpathia. I remember one of her phrases, which I take as a credo for myself. She said: ‘People sin 6 days in a week in order to go to church on Sunday and clean the soul for new sins.’ Therefore I try not to ‘clog’ the soul. Because I am ‘married’ to the profession and ‘she’, in a certain sense, is the sense of my life. Therefore, I try to live so that it was interesting to me! That's it!
