Get acquainted with Superheroes of our project:

Anna Svinukhova

My name is Anna Svinukhova and I am a Senior student majoring in  Economics and minoring in Mathematics. I have spent my entire  21 year old life in Astana, which is why I possess some “secret” knowledge about its tourist and non-tourist, but also remarkable, routes. I love traveling, and I love to do it in a useful way. Almost each undergraduate summer break I spent abroad in language schools, living in a family, learning French or English. I guess this desire to see the world and acquire new language is something that we have in common J. My other interests include literature, movies, and dancing. I really love to dance: my latest passion is Zumba.

I am so excited about this summer program at Nazarbayev University, and I am sure we will spend great time learning Russian and exploring Kazakhstani culture. Don’t hesitate to contact me (I know how it feels in a new country, since I was in language summer schools myself).

See you in Astana soon!GorcFNhcIYU
