Hello! I'm Luba. I am a student at Rutgers University and I moved to the U.S. 10 years ago. During my first year here I felt like an alien from another planet but now these feelings are gone and I feel at home here in America.
What is your ideal career?
I would like to be an art therapist or a photographer.
What do you like to do in your free time?
There are tons of things I like to do in my free time! I have a dog named Kuzya and we often go to the Rutgers Botanical Garden to enjoy forest trails and admire the seasonal blooms. I enjoy hiking, going to the beach, and spending time with friends and family. I'm also a big fan of painting and sometimes I teach grownups and children how to find their inner artists. The winter months are some of my favorite because they are perfect for cooking, baking, and knitting scarves. Another hobby that I've done since childhood is photography. I love taking pictures!
If you could hang out with one celebrity for a day, who would it be and what would you do?
I'd have breakfast at Tiffany's with Audrey Hepburn.
What is the best piece of advice you can give to the kids at YES?
Do what you really love to do. Find something that you could enjoy doing every single day of your life.
