Dear readers, I give you Ekaterina Olenitskaya from Russia - a fascinating person with a fascinating story. Just follow the link:
Dear Reader, You might be asking yourself why I have decided to start this humble online publication called Grassroots, which features interviews with students at United World School of English. The answer is simple: our students represent a fascinating cross section of the world today. And I hasten to add that I don’t refer to their nationality. I refer to their personalities, cultural background, ideologies, aspirations, attitudes, passions, their understanding of happiness, relationship, hierarchy, loyalty, faith. ‘It takes all sorts’, they say. Well, we’ve had all sorts - we’ve had self-taught philosophers and free thinkers, rebels, cynics and do-gooders, couch potatoes and sports fanatics, men-about-town and wallflowers, and all kinds of ‘-ists’ – conformists, sexists, activists, opti-/pessimists, atheists, anarchists, anti-corporatists, etc., etc., etc. I feel privileged to have the opportunity to talk with all these people, and it would be inexcusable not to tap into this source of life stories. Why Grassroots? Well, I am not a professional journalist and my students are not (yet) celebrities, politicians or other opinion makers. We are just ordinary people. We are grass roots.
