Decision of Life

22-year-old Giorgi Phkhachiashvili’s decision to become a journalist is almost as old as he himself. “In the years of civil war, when there was no electricity in Tbilisi, neighbors gathered to listen to 4-year-old Gio, to me. I told them the news I had listened to when they were working. It was funny show for them in the dark and frozen city”, Phkhachiashvili says.

In childhood Phkhachiashvili also dreamed to become a football player, but because of his health, he was not able to continue trainings. So playing football is his favorite, but not only hobby and plays with friends at least once a week.

“In childhood Giorgi was very good in sports, football and skiing. But his interests were broader than that. He studied even craft of cloisonne enamel. He was always very active. Giorgi’s decision to study journalism was not surprise for me. In spite of his diverse interests, I was always sure that Giorgi would become a journalist”- says Ketevan Katamadze, Pkhachiashvili’s mother. 

“If you ask me what is my dream profession now, my answer will be Film Director”, Pkhachiashvili says. This is the dream about which even his close friend, Levan Dolidze knows nothing.

But in spite of his dreams changing since childhood, he decided to become a journalist. In the eleventh form, when he participated in the youth project at the First Channel (now Georgian Public Broadcaster), he took firm decision to enter the Tbilisi State University, the Faculty of TV-Radio Journalism.

During his studies Phkhachiashvili worked at Caucasus Youth Environmental Network as a volunteer journalist. After graduation he started to work as Assistant to the Ministry at the Ministry of Environment. But he gave up work for more important thing, he says. Phkhachiashvili entered Georgian School of Public affairs, School of Journalism and Media Management and is again a student, with aspiration to become a professional Journalist.
