I come from Kyrgyzstan, beautiful country in Central Asia. As a teenager I studied in an American high school for a little bit, my school was in a small but a very beautiful city of Ithaca in New York. I studied Sociology in college and later got my Master’s degree in Sociology-Anthropology from the University of Science and Technology of Lille, Lille-1. As a student I enjoyed drama and all kinds of music. I can play piano and I learned to play traditional Kyrgyz music instrument. I have a large extended family; some of them live in different countries including China. I’d like to see as many countries as I can and experience their music and food.
