Our Student Polina Shtanko - On Inspiration, Attention, and Life Within The Walls of HSE University (St. Petersburg)
Polina came to us from a seemingly distant Belarus, but she became close and dear to our HSE Arts and Culture Management family. She came with a great background in arts and culture and a great desire to learn something new, as well as to grow professionally in the cultural capital of Russia (not only in the traditional sense of the word but also from the side of modern urban art). Polina shares how her life turned upside down when she arrived in St. Petersburg, what she discovered for herself, what step she took to achieve her professional goals, and what role HSE played in her life and plans.
