Get to know Yulia:
What book changed the way you see and understand the world?
Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov is my favorite! It taught me to not take myself too seriously, no matter how bad things look. Made me realize that in life, it’s great to just be silly, have fun, and laugh.
If you had one extra hour of free time a day, how would you use it?
If I had an extra hour a day, I would do more jigsaw puzzles! It’s a great balance of mental engagement and relaxation. I find it to be an effective mode of meditation, by creating order out of chaos.
What quote speaks to you most/makes you laugh?
“If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.”
If you could pick up a new skill in an instant, what would it be?
If I could pick up a new skill in an instant, it would be to master gardening so that I’d be able to grow my own roses and peonies.
