I am a global citizen and a passionate third generation entrepreneur with trilingual skills in Russian, English, and Chinese. I thrive in the world of ideas and believe that the concept of experiential education is not only exciting for youth, but instills in them an effective tool to invite them to be hungry for more.
Throughout my professional career I am recognized as the go-to person and an action-oriented leader. As the first point of contact in the role of International Program Coordinator at Far Eastern Federal University, I supervised, assisted, and advised up to 400 Chinese students, finding solutions for their individual needs and providing a comfortable environment to help them achieve academic goals. I served as the primary interpreter for the Ministries of Education of China and Russia during the opening ceremony of “Russian language year in China.”
My thirst for knowledge is unquenchable. While an undergraduate I wanted to learn more about Chinese culture and language. I took independent courses while taking a full course load at FEFU. My spirit of adventure led me to Boston to complete an MS in International Affairs at Northeastern University. While finishing my degree I enrolled in two courses: one at the Harvard extension program in web development titled, “Dynamic Web Applications” and another at General Assembly in “Front-end Web Development Immersive.” My passions are travel, a quest for knowledge, and sharing my experiences with others. I have traveled to more than 15 countries to learn more about the people and their culture. I enjoy interacting with new cultures taking in all the sights, smells, and ambience of a country and would rather go to small village that has never seen a foreigner and try to mingle with locals than stay in touristy places.
