I am Maria. I was born and raised in Russia. When I was 19, I left my country and moved to France to study law at the University of Strasbourg. Back then, I couldn´t even imagine how life-changing would be that movement.
As a result of the thirst for new knowledge and discovery that I developed, I have lived and studied in 4 countries (Russia, France, the Netherlands, and Germany).
Every country from the list had a huge influence on me, my way of thinking and seeing the things – and this to the point, that I can´t identify myself with one single place anymore. Finally, I happen to be married to a Mexican, so even if I have not lived in Mexico, its traditions, mentality, and language are very present in my life too.
