Join Couchsurfing to see Irina’s full profile.
I am a driven, adventurous, and determined person who adores exploring the world and learn about different cultures. Being an exchange student who majors in Linguistics and Intercultural Communications, I am extremely excited to start my travels around the US! I'm sure that communication with people of other nationalities greatly broadens our horizons and expands our opportunities.
I have always enjoyed going to the theatres, art galleries and museums. I have already been to the Institute of Art in Chicago, which is such a splendid place! To see the world masterpieces with my own eyes is an incredible experience for me.
As for sport hobbies, I was into ballroom dancing for ten years, now I enjoy running and gym trainings. Also love bachata and salsa:)
As I grew up in a rather provincial town of Russia and then moved to its capital, Moscow, I possess quite a broad vision of life in my home country. I will be happy to share my experience of living in Russia and speak about Russian culture.
Having become a finalist of the YEAR exchange program (Year in America for Russians), I have started my studies in Saint Paul, Minnesota recently.
