I hail from the cornfields of Wilkinson, Indiana, and I am a double-major with Global and International Studies. I began studying Russian my freshman year of college, and I have since studied Russian around the world, from Indiana to Central Asia. One summer I studied Russian in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, followed by a fall semester in Irkutsk, Russia, where I was effectively immersed in Siberian life. My Junior IS was about African Americans in the Soviet Union, and my Senior IS is about Russian opposition movements. When I’m not studying, I’m causing mischief with friends and sleeping-in on the weekends.
