Oksana, you wrote the following on Facebook on August 9, 2011:"I understood today, at a practice, why I am who I am. I love being on the ice and I love expressing myself. I must be diferent than everybody else. I like to skate and be different. Sometimes I feel like a clown and sometimes a feel like a graceful idiot!"
What are you trying to tell your friends and fans?"On Facebook today, I was trying to tell everyone that skating is my passion. I am so lucky! I've had a wonderful life and I want to share the joy and passion I have for skating with everyone I meet, at the rink or online."
How has Facebook helped you to share your passion and love of figure skating?"I love Facebook because I can talk to my fans directly. Facebook is GREAT! It's the best thing I ever did. In only three months, I have over 3500 friends! Wow, do I feel loved!"
Why are you so open and friendly with everyone you meet?"I consider every person who skates or loves figure skating a part of my family. I do not have a family of my own, so I feel connected with every skater and fan."
What are you doing these days?"I'm doing all sorts of fun things. I have lived in New Jersey for the past fifteen years. I have a view of New York City from my residence and I can see the water when I wake up in the morning. I go to the beach quite often. I must be near the water since it makes me so happy!"
Are you doing any performances?"I haven't done much performing for the past four years, but I have done some charity work appearances. For example, I went to the Ukraine and did seminars and interviews. That was so fun! I've skated for causes like Tim David's One Step Closer benefit show which helped to fight HIV/AIDS.
I am thinking about doing a certain show and another love story type skating movie is in the works. I can't say too much about either since nothing is definite yet.
I would like to put on a benefit to help Japan. What happened there was so awful. I would also like to skate a program with an Asian theme."
