Another Russian magazine from the Russian city of Tomsk, not far from where I grew up, considering the size of Siberia. It’s a little bit weird and very flattering being in local media of my home country and even region, despite having lived on the other side of the world for the last decade. It’s surreal: even though I don’t live there and my entire professional career has been built in a different country, Mother Russia still knows who I am and what I do. The world feels really small sometimes.

Russia and Canada are the two best countries in the world and I love being a citizen of both -It’s like having two families who both love you and take care of you. Two sets of moms and dads who have your best interests in mind and provide you with a  double sense of belonging. And sometimes a double sense of abandonment on rare occasions when you have a fight, but mostly belonging. It’s quite wonderful.
