Katrina Keegan

Katrina Keegan is an undergraduate student at the University of Chicago studying all things Eurasia. She has lived in Russia, Moldova, Azerbaijan and Ukraine for nearly two years. Yet no matter how much time she spends eating mayonnaise-based salads and slowly becoming convinced that sitting on the ground really could cause one's ovaries to freeze, she never tires of learning about more of the region's quirks and writing about them. Her work has appeared in Verge Magazine and is forthcoming in Glint Literary Magazine
