Katia’s natural habitat is the library. Whether it be following domestic politics, keeping up with international news or indulging in her new favorite novel, Katia often devotes more time to monitoring the world and following her favorite characters’ lives than focusing on the happenings of her own life. When she is not engulfed in a book, she spends her time at school, taking fascinating classes including academic decathlon and choir. At her school, Katia is also an active participant in seven clubs, her favorites being Philosophy club and Junior State of America, a political discussion group. Katia aspires to study Development Economics at University and aims to explore her passion by contributing to the economic and political development of foreign nations.
