My Travel Story

by: Leonor Morrow Start Date: Feb 9, 2017 - End Date: Jun 8, 2017
Hello! Здравствуйте!

My name is Leonor Morrow and I am a sophomore at Georgetown University. I am majoring in Culture and Politics with a focus on linguistics and migration and minoring in Russian. From June 17th to August 13th 2017, I will have the amazing opportunity to live and study in Saint Petersburg, Russia. I will be taking Russian language courses as well as content-based courses in Russian in order to improve my language skills.

Please consider donating to my campaign in order to alleviate the costs of studying abroad. I have received some assistance in the form of scholarships, but unfortunately this is not enough to cover all expenses. Any and all help is greatly appreciated! Peruse the Donor Rewards on the right and click if you see something you like.

As a Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship recipient, I must complete a follow-up project upon returning home. For this project, I plan to combine my love of people, culture, and photography. I will capture Humans of New York-style photographs of my fellow classmates, my host family, and other people I encounter in Russia, as well as images of significant historical places. Each photo will be accompanied by a brief caption, the location where it was taken, the date, and camera/lens information. I will post these photos to a blog ( and also publish them as a physical collection.

To keep up with my future ventures, follow me on social media: Facebook / Instagram / LinkedIn

Thanks! Спасибо!
