About Me

Hello! I am a young language teacher from Russia who loves traveling, studying and cultural exchange. I speak Russian, English and Mandarin Chinese. The next two years I will be a student at San-Francisco State University.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have some experience and knowledge to share with the world, and I believe it's mutual!

Music, Movies, and Books

I am a big fan of J.R.R. Tolkien world! I also love fantasy like Game of Thrones, Wiedźmin and post-apocalyptic movies.
As for music, I am a rock/metal fan, but I also enjoy listening to modern hits (and singing them).

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have two that truly changed me. When I was 16, I went to the USA to study for a year as a FLEX exchange student, it was one of the toughest and the most educational periods of my life. I also changed my major from something I didn't like to teaching Chinese and English, and that allowed me to go study in China, and also realize that teaching is what I really want to do all my life.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I am a well-educated person with a wide range of interests, and also a big patriot of my own country. I can tell my hosts all about living in Russia, and as I've also lived in other countries very different from my own, I have something to compare it with. I love singing, and I can entertain my hosts by singing Russian folk songs - and no, not only Kalinka :)))
