One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

In 2004 I learned Spanish in one month and successfully passed the entrance test for the Spanish programme at Université Laval (Québec, QC).
In 2009 I got a very high score in the Swedish entrance test for Åbo Akademi (Finland) and was accepted as a student for the Swedish programme.
Since 2010 I have been volunteering as an editor of a Russian opposition website.

What I Can Share with Hosts

By profession I am a translator, so I can mainly help with languages.
I can help people learn my native language, Russian. If needed, I can also help with other languages that I know well.
I have some Russian films and songs with me, which you can watch and listen to.
I have advanced computer skills and can share them as well.
If you think that I can contribute in some other way, you can ask me.
