My name is Fedor Balayev, im 19, and I'm a sophomore studying mechanical engineering with the outlook for a math minor. Interests include; automobiles, being outdoors, biking, cooking/eating "whole" foods (of course, shopping at Whole Foods), hanging out, an occasional run, and watching a good movie/show.
I am taking this class because, as a kid, I had opportunity to travel through Finland, Sweden, and Norway, and back, via a week-long bus tour with my mom, cousin, and aunt. The experience was stunning, not to mention, a great way to travel the three Scandinavian countries. The culture and society impressed me, and hence, my further desire to learn brings me to this class.
