Hi everyone, my name is Svetlana. My pronouns are she/her, and that’s how I would like to be addressed. I’m currently majoring in human services at City Tech. I was born in Russia and moved to New York at a very young age. I currently reside in Brooklyn with my family. Since moving to the states, I’ve only lived in NY, but I would love to experience living in other states. I enjoy reading, writing, shopping, listening to music, spending time with family, and etc. Like many other students, I began college during the pandemic. It was a very difficult and scary time, and caused a lot of additional stress on me. I’ve never done online school before, so it took me a while to get adjusted to this new normal way of attending classes.
The most important and meaningful thing to me is my family. I don’t feel comfortable posting a picture of my family, but this family picture is very beautiful. I love my family very much and really thankful for them. They’re very supportive and encourage me to follow my dreams. We don’t always agree on everything, but we’re accepting of each other’s thoughts or feelings. This past year has allowed us to grow closer and spend so much more time together than we’ve ever done before.
