About Me


Trying to understand and find my place in a wonderful world of non-profit international organisations


In 2014 I finished my studies in Moscow and decided to quit my journalist job to have a "gap year" . I spend it traveling, volunteering, studing languages and writing articles in freelance. I mostly lived in Italy and Turkey that time.

After it I moved to Madrid as I adore this city and spanish language in general. I stayed there for a year voluneeting in one NPO .

Then I got a master degree in international cooperation and development in Roma Tre University in Italy.
Now I am working for one of the UN agencies, helping refugees and migrants. I used to live in Thailand, Myanmar, Spain, Italy, Cuba, Bolivia and Peru.

I am optimistic person, I believe in the best and like helpful people with sense of humor. I'm sure that most of the people are great and some infrequent bad experiences cannot convince me of the opposite.

Earlier I thought that I am active and talkative but after had been living in Italy and comparing me to local people there, I have some doubts about it..)


Take a sad song and make it better
Be a change you want to see in the world
