"Zahir, in Arabic, means visible, present, incapable of going unnoticed"-Faubourg Saint-Peres, Encyclopedia of the Fantastic 1953
"What makes some people able to come through catastrophes, and others, apparently just as able, strong and brave, go under? It happens in every upheaval...I only know that the survivors used to call that quality 'gumption.' So I wrote about the people who had gumption, and the people who didn't." -Margaret Mitchell
Being born in Moscow, Russia and then moving to the United States has allowed me to grow, learn, and understand two different cultures at once. Writing has always been a passion of mine. From a very young age I began writing my own short stories and essays.
Why international business or relations you ask? Well for one I have to thank to all the unique people in my life. I have friends from all over the world; Brazil, Morocco, Lebanon, and even China. I chose this field of my studies because of how fascinating I find different cultures to be. So please don't be shy ask any questions you might have!
Learn, read, grow.
