About Me


start a career:)


I am a 27 year old female. I was born in Russia and raised in NYC. I have a vested interest in the Middle East, having lived, worked, and studied across North Africa and now moving north to Jordan. I want to see as much of the world as possible and learn through observation/absorption.


Welcome change.
