I spent the summer working as a volunteer at a children’s camp in the Russian countryside. I taught English classes and worked as a counselor at a camp called Computeria—a technology camp. The campers are a combination of well-off kids who can afford the $900 U.S. tuition and orphanage kids on scholarship. It is at once very similar and very different from American camps. The complex covers 14 hectares in a wonderful pine forest. It has been an amazing experience; I’ve never done anything like it before. It has taken me out of my comfort zone entirely and changed my career plans.
I'm planning to apply for a Fulbright to come back to Russia to teach English. Law school can wait.
