Russian American dual citizen and Gen 1.5 immigrant. 22-year-old graduating English and biology senior at the University of Maryland heading to law school. I’ve done radio journalism.

I’m hoping to provide a place where the immigrant community can get some insight into the turbulent world of U.S. immigration and citizenship.
