Co-Founder | The Travel Shake

Traveling is my passion. With this motto in my mind, I started my journey towards adult life. An ambitious girl eager to discover this world, I used to be an 18-year-old applicant following my childish dreams. So, the choice of my vocation was made, at once and with no further doubts. Obtaining a prestigious diploma in my hometown in Altai, I was moving forward to make all my dreams come true.

In St. Petersburg, a brand new start was awaiting me – International Economics Degree in English. The events were changing each other like a kaleidoscope: academic practice in Switzerland at international organizations, volunteer program bringing together the students from all over the world to teach English classes at schools in Brazil, high-profile position at a big Russian bank.

Then, a new period of my life came in. Soul searching. Discovering new talents and inspiration in my inner world. I need to confess that I am a sophisticated aesthete, seeing the beauty in the harmony of lines, colors, and proportions. I value creativity and fresh ideas. Love to create and contemplate. I love life. And travel a lot. One of my long-loved destinations is London, where I used to learn about style and making prints on textile.

A new chapter in my life was brought to me by The Travel Shake project. I am excited to implement my rich experience in traveling, international communications, personal growth and insights in management and marketing, and what is even more important – I want to grow further, since all the doors are open for us! It is time to create my own concept – fruitful and inspiring both for myself and the people around.
