  • I enjoy discovering different cultures by learning languages Being brought up in an ethnic Tatar family in Moscow, I grew up speaking two language. At age 4 I was fluent in both tatar and russian. At 7 years old I asked my dad to teach me English alphabet. I learned some Italian a few years ago and it was a lot of fun reading books in Italian to my Italian nephew
  • After visiting Spain in 2003 I fell in love with the country. I started learning Spanish a couple of years ago in NY, and later traveled to cusco, peru to study at Spanish language school. I am currently an intermediate level Spanish student at Instituto Cervantez in New York.
  • Speaking different languages contributes both to my personal and professional development. When I am travelling, I enjoy being able to communicate with people in their native languages. It helps me to connect with people wherever I am. I think it conveys that I am genuinely interested in and respectful of their culture.
  • I enjoy listening to Luciano Pavarotti and understanding the lyrics. I love reading J. D. Salinger and Paulo Cuelho in the original.
  • Learning English helped me move from Moscow to New York. This move opened up new opportunities for my personal and professional growth.
  • In my professional life, speaking several languages made me more open minded and understanding of cultural differences in the work place. When my co-workers or clients find out that I speak their language, it immediately breaks the ice and establishes an atmosphere of trust.
  • Speaking Russian allowed me to win company CLASS (Competitive Leaders Achieve Superior Service) award for my part in the Superstorm Sandy recovery efforts in Russian-speaking areas of New York
  • I believe that after getting an MBA degree and entering the global job market, speaking several languages will makes me more competitive.
