Polina Polikahina

My name is Polina and I am a sophomore civil engineering student. I was born and raised in Russia. Four years ago I moved with my family to Anchorage, AK where I lived for 1.5 years before moving to Portland to pursue my studies. I love this city! It is a great place to be if you want to become a transportation engineer or a city planner - something that I want to do with my degree.

When I'm not buried in homework, I love to travel different places and go outdoors (especially mountain backpacking), bake pies, play my accordion, do arts and crafts, read books (mostly Russian ones), dance tango, ride my bicycle around, write postcards to my friends and, of course, unconsciously run physics problems in the back of my brain.

I love what I'm studying that's why I'm a S3 mentor, which allows me to share my passion for engineering and knowledge about PSU with other people.
