Elina Vaskova is an ELC Los Angeles student from Russia; more specifically, the city of Kazan in the region of Tatarstan. She has been in LA for a couple months now and really feels like she’s starting to fit in with the locals. She just got her American driver’s license and is all set to explore LA and California! She likes LA so much she’s looking to stay for a while! Why not take a couple minutes to learn a little more about Elina?
No, it’s my third time in the USA. I’ve been to LA before, and I really like this city.
People are very friendly here. They do not hesitate to give compliments in public places and they smile all the time.
No, I didn’t. I can easily get used to different cultural aspects.
I miss my family and friends.
I like to travel very much, to learn about different cultures. Also I like sports. I go to the gym and sometimes play tennis.
Instagram. I like to keep in touch with my friends, especially when they are far from me.
Speak English as much as possible, do not be afraid to make mistakes, and try to watch movies in English and read books.
My favorite place is Malibu Beach. It’s very quite and clean.
I’m a fan of organic food, so I like to go to Le Pain Quotidien cafe.
I like Asian and Italian food.
