My name is Kristina Dergacheva. I am an international student from Russia. Currently I am studying politics and economics, because I am very passionate about them. We can see many different issues around the world, I hope that one day I could help to solve them. Also, I am trying to be very active in my every-day life. I am president of Trent University Russian Speaking Association. We are trying to be very cheerful and make many fun events. Furthermore, I am trying to be involved in Canadian politics. I am a part of Trent University Politics Society. We have different symposiums and debates, which could help you to actually love politics. As for my personal life, I am 19 years old. My parents and little brother lives in Russia, so I miss them much. However, here in Canada I do have many important people for me, so I never feel lonely. I really enjoy writing and I am very pleased with the fact that I am able to write for such an awesome newspaper as Arthur! It's an amazing experience, and I hope in the closest future I would be able to write some more nice stories for it.
