I was born and grew up in Horilsk, which is a town behind the Arctic Circle. When I was eighteen years old I moved to Krasnodar. Now I'm twenty years old and still live there. I speak Russian, English, German and Ukrainian. Also I study French. I would like to speak as many languages as only possible for a human being. Besides my work in Global Voices I translate subtitles for YouTube and Tedtalks. I decided to work as a volunteer translator because I need practice translating from different languages.
