Marina is from Volgograd, Russia, a city known as Stalingrad. She loved learning languages in school which gave her an opportunity to travel abroad. Her first trip to the United States was a high school exchange year in Arkansas at the age of 15. Since then, she studied and lived in the U.S., Russia and spent a semester in Spain. Marina graduated with a B.A. in Strategic Communications from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock and is currently working on her master’s degree from DePaul University in Public Relations and Advertising.
Marina believes that words are powerful. One of her goals, both personally and professionally, is to use words well – to communicate effectively and create positive change. She is excited for the opportunity to apply her passion for communications and languages at Multilingual Connections.
In her free time, Marina enjoys traveling, cooking, watching movies, dancing, and learning languages.
