Traveler Bio

Здравствуйте! Hello! My name is Angelica Evans, but everyone calls me Angie. I am currently a senior international studies and Russian double major at Texas A&M University. I am 21 years old and I will be graduating from Texas A&M in December. I grew up on a farm near Comanche, Texas, about as far away from anything international as someone can be.

Over the last three and a half years at Texas A&M, I have studied Russian language and culture, including looking at a lot of Russian art and reading a lot of famous Russian books. I also studied relationships between countries. I was so excited to study abroad in Moscow at Moscow State University of International Relations (MGIMO). I wanted to learn the Russian perspective on international events and policies. My life and studies in Moscow are memories that I love to share with others, and I cannot wait to share it all with you!
