Grinnell College
Santiago - Politics, Social Justice & Language

My name is Misha and I am a third year international student at Grinnell College in Iowa. I am an enthusiastic traveler, foodie, and outdoors lover. I take my camera wherever I go and I’ll do my best to give you a taste of what studying in Santiago is like. This will be my third time in Latin America and I already cannot wait for all the adventures ahead. Hope you will enjoy the journey just as I will!
