Everyone has a story, complicated, joyful, challenging, and beautiful. This is mine.
I was born in Russia and emigrated to the United States seven years ago at the peak of my career as a journalist. I dropped everything and started my life from scratch, chasing my dream of becoming an artist. "I took the (road) one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.” Some people may say I waited too long, but I suppose the magic happened when I was ready and the time was right.
I faced a lot of challenges but eventually found my way.
As a foreign born (people do not like the word "immigrant" anymore), I have something to say and a unique perspective to bring to the table. I believe in the power of the voice of women and feel blessed to be able to help them to catch their dreams.
