Greetings, Dear Reader!

A few weeks ago, we asked you, the members of the CiC community, to show us your diverse worlds and perspectives through video submissions. Of the many we received, we chose four to feature in our two-part A Day in Your Life Series. Today’s first video features Victoria and Sofi, two DRs living on opposite hemispheres of the globe but sharing an optimism for living and learning.

Victoria – Age: 18

Home: Shanghai, Russia, and New YorkVictoria 1

Hi! My name is Victoria, I am 18 and am originally from Russia. I am a freshman at the University of Rochester in Rochester, NY, majoring in Microbiology and International Relations. The only thing that I have firmly believed in through high school and into college is that I have to say a giant YES to every opportunity that comes my way, even if it feels like I will be the last person ever picked for it. That was how I approached submitting an application for this project, and it ended up being so much fun to do, and is something that my friends and I hope to do more of!

Sofi – Age: 15

Home: Guatemala

Hello, my name is Sofi. I’m 15 years old, and I live in Guatemala. I attend school from 7:30am to 3:30pm. After school, I normally do all of my homework, play the cello and if there’s still time I go to the gym or take my dog for a walk. I firmly believe that I can achieve anything I set my mind to. Somethings require more effort and discipline but anything is achievable.

Stay tuned for the second installment of A Day in Your Life this THURSDAY!


“A Day in Your Life” was inspired by the vibrant and diverse members of the Cath in College community. The project was created by CiC Intern, Claire Fridkin, who is currently a freshman at Harvard. Claire was once a DR herself, and participated in the “Dear Reader Diaries” last summer. You can check out her writing here!
