RUSSIAN POETRY, ACTIVISM & ART
Truly one of Millbrook’s academic powerhouses in math and science, Stephen also excelled in AP French and undertook an independent study to learn Russian with the help of a Ukraine-based tutor.
In Stephen’s CES presentation, he read aloud, in Russian, several original poems and songs while displaying their English translations. His readings were accompanied by illustrations in the form of photographs and art. Stephen’s interest in Russian culture has roots in his family, and his connection to a Ukrainian tutor during the turmoil of the war with Russia made this project all the more personal and culminating.
