It was a full house at the JESC opening party, and we had the chance to meet the extremely charismatic Nadezhda from Belarus. It was super loud and super crowded, but she still enchanted us with her description of “Sokal” and introduced us to her friends. Check it all out here:

Nadezhda Misyakova interview

Even though Nadezhda didn’t always understand the questions before they were translated, she always replied in near-perfect English and was super courteous. Well done, mom and dad! She discussed her photo shoot, her feelings about the sunny island of Malta, and she sent a message to our readers.
