Family is a large and important part of my life. The majority of my family lives here in Moscow and I love being able to see them so frequently. I have a very close relationship with my parents and grandparents. They support me in all of my endeavors and activism. Though my eight year-old brother is who gives me hope. He is a caring person and I adore watching him grow into such an inspired individual.Working in the Women's Center is such a joy for me. It is a place that embodies the change I wish to see for myself and society. The friendships that I have made here are irreplaceable, and further motivate me be the activist that I am. As an advocate for everyone who is denied the rights that they deserve, working here has given me the opportunity to make a difference and work towards creating a society of acceptance and caring.
