Alina Blyum’s Diary
Belarus Wetlands

July 23, 2009: Getting started

Hi everyone! I'm Alina Blyum from Alcoa Russia, Samara plant. In less than a week I'm going to participate in an Alcoa Earthwatch project "Belarus Wetlands." Imagine how impatient I am now! (I already started packing!) Several months ago I received a message saying that I was chosen and couldn't believe my eyes! 
A little bit about myself. I've been with Alcoa for 3 years now. I started right after graduation and have been working as an interpreter. This year I was transferred to the FRP technical department to work as process management group leader. I'm 25 and I enjoy travelling and studying foreign languages. I'm sure this expedition is going to be a tremendous experience that will enable me to learn something extremely new (where else would I have learnt anything about bogs in Belarus??!!) and use this new knowledge and skills to help preserve the vulnerable ecosystem of Belarus wetlands. I will keep you posted on my adventures and progress!

Привет, отдыхающим! как дела? какие новости? как болота? уверена, что все не так плохо, как ты головрила. Надеюсь, комары тебя не съели и ты отлично проводишь время.
