I’m Katie: a recent graduate of Notre Dame with a degree in Russian and an unhealthy obsession with dill. Fortunately for me, these two things go well together, and now I am spending a year as a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant (ETA) in Ukhta, Komi Republic, Russia. There I hope to increase my understanding of the Russian language, culture, and people, while at the same time exposing Ukhta to a bit of America-in-the-flesh and consuming absurd amounts of sour cream… and dill.
I should clarify: Ukhta isn’t actually north of everywhere. Just most wheres.
