Hello, my name is Adina, and I'm from Kazakhstan. My native language is Russian because my parents were born in the Soviet Union when people could not use the Kazakh language or study in it. However, I studied Kazakh at school on a par with English and strive to be fluent in Kazakh. Despite this, I honor the traditions and culture of my people. For example, in the second picture, I am sitting with my classmates in a yurt (a traditional portable dwelling of nomads) on the day of the celebration of the Kazakh national New Year.
