Hi everyone! I’m Ilya, and I am very excited to be a PAA this year. I am now a junior on the premedical track. Born in Belarus, I was raised and grew up in Northeast Ohio (midwest coast, best coast). On campus I am passionate about service and am involved with the Pace Center and Service Focus, Science Olympiad, and the Global Health Program. My favorite class so far has been HIS 395 History of Medicine and the Body because it has helped me to think about health and medicine from a new angle and really grow academically and professionally. In my free time, I love taking walks around campus, reading, playing piano, and I’m a big fan of watching food videos and tennis matches. I look forward to meeting and getting to know you all. Always feel free to reach out to talk about anything, I’m here for you!
