Global Stories - Russian

Saturday, May 6, 2023 - 10:30am to 11:00am

First Saturday Readalouds
Listen to stories and songs told in different languages by Lake Oswego community members. Each month spotlights a different world language, familiar songs, and a simple craft.

This month Elena shares stories in Russian. Twenty years ago Elena immigrated with her young daughter to the U.S. from Sevastopol, Crimea (which was Ukraine and is now Russia). Elena went to college, earning a Bachelor's Degree in Supply & Logistics Management and later a Master's of Business Administration. Her daughter Diana learned a third language, French, in middle school and studied it through her university years. She is now in medical school to become a doctor.
