What part of the former Soviet Union are you from (if you are from there)?

I lived in Tartu, Estonia and Riga, Latvia for 10 years combined

What language(s) do you speak?

English, Russian as well as some Estonian and a tiny bit of Latvian

What are your interests/hobbies?

I volunteer teach English as a second language, I love bicycling, reading and checking out new bars and restaurants. I also enjoy traveling to Virginia to spend time with family (and breathing country air) at least a few times a month.

What events would you like this group to have?

I'd love to go up to the Northeast and check out Russian restaurants and bars. I'd also like to go to concerts and other cultural events. Mostly, I'd like to speak Russian (and be exposed to Russian language and culture) as much as much as possible.

What location(s) do you prefer for this group’s events?

I'd prefer Center City, Philadelphia as I don't have a car. But I'll go retty much anywhere I can take SEPTA or ride my bike:)


Hi! My name is Jessica Morrison. I'm 29 years old and, though I'm American, I spent most of my childhood in Estonia and Latvia, living in Russian neighborhoods. I also minored in Russian at college (at Temple University).
