Current undergraduate of Political Science-International Affairs and Russian Studies About: I am currently studying for one semester at MGIMO with the plan of graduating from Seattle Pacific University in 2018. I have lived in Russia since the summer of 2016 and have also spent a considerable amount of time living in Japan, Italy, and the United States. This blog will focus on a wide range of issues that affect both Russia and America. I hope to balance out the blog with some posts being highly objective and others being strongly opinionated.
