Get to know Polina
Hometown and what it’s known for: Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk in the Far East of Russia. We’re known for a unique blend of Russian, Korean and Japanese cultures!
Craziest travel adventure: Getting lost in the Italian Alps, hitchhiking to the nearest village and nearly crashing because of a deer that jumped onto a narrow mountain road in the dark.
The first music concert I went to: Red Hot Chili Peppers in Moscow. I flew across the country just for their show and had the best time. I’ve been hooked on live music ever since!
Favourite movie: It’s a close tie between The Darjeeling Limited and Lost in Translation.
At the top of my bucket list: See Manta rays on a night dive in Kona, Hawaii! Or go beach bar hopping in Curaçao.
Three items I would take to a deserted island: Speaker to play some great tunes, camera with a battery that never runs out, and SPF because sun protection is key!
A cause I’m passionate about: Mental health. There is a severe lack of resources for those struggling with mental health conditions. I hope that by speaking up about it and offering empathy and support to those around us, we will be able to break the stigma around mental illness.
