Graduated with a Distinction and a BA in English and Slavic Languages and Literature from Duke University.
Russian is my native language, although I am currently certified as a Level 3 Russian-as-a-Foreign-Language Speaker by the Ministry of General and Professional Education of the Russian Federation. This is due to the fact that I was born in Ukraine, and completed the bulk of my education in the United States.
Ukrainian is my second language. I am generally more comfortable translating from Ukrainian into English than the other way around.
English my third language.
I am a passionate activist against human trafficking, which has greatly affected my birth country, Ukraine. I am also a freelance editor/writer.
