My name is Marina Shchekacheva. Greetings from Vancouver, British Columbia! I am fourth-year Environmental Design and I am passionate about the creation of community-powered public spaces. I’ve been learning to keep a positive attitude when everything is radically changing—a key skill that I want and try to develop.
Being positive and flexible helps me adapt, help, and support those around me. It is especially important during these ever-changing COVID-times and when it is over. Distractions are a reality of remote learning and they challenge my productivity, but I am looking forward to graduating this year, the end of the quarantine, visiting my hometown and hugging my friends and parents!
