My name is Zach, and I'm from Columbus, Ohio! I'm the GA for the IPEA office, and am an MA student in Kent's Russian Translation program. Over the last 10 years, I've been abroad for about 7 of them, and know a lot about being an exchange student, learning a foreign language (or two!), and living and working in a different country. This year is different, but there are still ways to keep your mind open and to engage with the world. I'm very passionate about the Russian and Ukrainian languages, and would be happy to answer any questions you have.
