More about Giavana
Giavana Margo is a 2011 graduate of Seattle Pacific University with a Bachelor of Arts in Russian Studies and English Literature. She has a great love of Eastern Europe which was born out of a summer spent volunteering at a small rural orphanage in Ukraine’s northeastern town of Bogodukhiv. Upon returning to my university in Seattle, she quickly enrolled in Russian language courses hoping to develop an understanding of this culture and region. She has now studied the language for three years and returned to Ukraine on several occasions, independently volunteering in orphanages throughout Ukraine for two more summers. This opportunity afforded her the chance to see the wealth of the Ukrainian landscape and experience the diversity of its people. During her senior year at university, she spent a year abroad, studying literature and art throughout the UK for a semester and then studying Russian language, literature and history St. Petersburg for another semester, taking in Russian art, architecture, music and theatre.
