Hello! My name is Celesta and I am a junior here at Mason. I am majoring in Integrative Studies with a concentration in Organizational Administration and minoring in Business. Depending on how this semester goes, I am considering declaring another minor in Art History. Art has always been a passion of mine but I haven’t had enough time since I came to college to explore that field. I am originally from Russia but my family and I came to America around 6 years ago. It’s so different here than any other country that I’ve lived in that I am still assimilating! Before America, my family and I lived in Cyprus, a Greek island in the middle of the Mediterranean. By far the most beautiful and serene place I’ve ever lived in. I fluently speak Russian and English and am pretty advanced in Ukrainian, Greek and Spnish. I’ve attended 11 different schools and have lived in 8 different countries before settling in America. My father held executive positions in several different tobacco companies and his job is what made us move around and see all these amazing places. He is a primary factor in me wanting to study business. I hope to follow in his footsteps and make my family proud. I am looking forward to learning about working with people and building meaningful relationships in the business environment.
