My name is Olga Plyaskina. I am a graduate of Omsk State University, (www.omsu.omskreg.ru ), Philology Department (2001). Being an alumna of a high school exchange program with America FSA FLEX’96 I closely cooperated with the US NGO “Project Harmony Inc», that promotes the usage of the Internet for educational purposes all over Russia and a few former Soviet countries. Having participated in various trainings and events organized by the “Project Harmony Inc” I felt that want to locate my future career in the field of educational technology and studying towards a master’s degree is a necessity to become a professional.
I am really looking forward to studying at Georgia State University, Atlanta. I love traveling, have been to 5 countries so far and this is my second time to America. I hope to meet my old friends, make new ones and have a productive and enjoyable stay while on the program.
