My high school journalism teacher, as she helped nurture my love for writing.
What was your greatest moment?
I marched in the May Day Parade in Moscow.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
A Squidoo lensmaster, what else?
What advice would you give to your teenage self?
Try new things, taste new foods, visit new places, speak a second language, keep a journal, learn to dive, keep your options open by studying the basics – English, math and science, don’t give up to quickly and have fun.
Share something you learned at your day job that applies to life in general.
If you don’t have time to do it right the first time, how will you ever find the time to fix it?
How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?
Depends on the day and the activity. When I am traveling I am in my 20s. When I am doing a new exercise program and all sore, I am in my 60s.
