To Master Words

My drive is to master my second language, English, to the level and beyond of my first, which is Russian, and to make a career out of it. I was fortunate to have been born with a gift for words, which was recognized early and my career and was bringing me a daily dose of thrill and joy. When I moved to the U.S., I was paralyzed by not being able to be one with language. I am fluent in English, but getting to the level of comfort and mutual feelings as I had with Russian is what drives me to wake up in unreasonable hours, take on courses, freelance, and personal projects, and strategize my career more than I have ever had to in my life.
