Tamara Volozhanina, Green Templeton CollegeMSc in Global Governance and Diplomacy

I am a twenty-one-year-old Russian national residing in Austria and holding a BA degree in International Affairs & Journalism from the John Cabot University, an American University in Rome. As a provincial Russian girl who graduated from an international school in Vienna, studied in Rome, New York and Brussels, and speaks Russian, English, German and a little bit of French, Arabic and Italian, I see diplomacy as a key to achieving a more normative global equilibrium and a harmonic Russia-West co-existence. Thus, I dream to work for an international organisation such as UN or OSCE, in the field of international security, conflict resolution and counter-terrorism.

As for hobbies, I enjoy ballet, writing poems and love fashion. Back in Rome, I was entirely focused on studying – and became a valedictorian of my class. However, at Oxford I really hope to pay more attention to my social life growing and be a part of the Green Templeton interconnected and loving environment.
