Ekaterina Alexandrova is an MA Student in Communication and Media Studies at Fordham University. At the age of 19, Ekaterina began her journalism career as an intern for a TV news program in Russia. The same year, she continued as an anchor and a producer for a daily news show. After a while, it occurred to her that she was skipping too many classes at the School of Journalism in St. Petersburg State University, so she quit her job to dedicate more time to her studies. Instead of becoming a good student though, she started to write for a local newspaper and ended up working there as a deputy editor-in-chief. In addition, after she once appeared as a guest on a youth TV program on Russian National Channel Five, she couldn't help but join the crew as a part-time producer. Shortly, she found herself being done with print and assumed a full-time editor-in-chief and co-anchor on the program. When it occurred to her again that because of her job she was barely attending any classes, she realized she actually graduated years ago. Still frustrated with her academic achievement, she entered a postgraduate Media and Communications program at the University of Westminster in London. Habitually not concentrating on her studies, she kept working and flying back and forth between countries. The only way to stop this nonsense was to enter a school across the ocean, which she did. So, at the age of 27, Ekaterina finished her journalism career and finally started to be a good student. Although, it has to be said that working on TV did permanent damage to her personality.
