Making a New Home in The Valley

May 20, 2016

On this episode of The Spark: Anastasia Suslaev came to America at the age of 10, knowing two words of English. Since then she'd gotten her undergraduate degree from Eastern Mennonite, her Masters from JMU, and she's just about to become a certified nurse midwife.

 Shortly after WMRA finished its series on Refugees, Anastasia Suslaev emailed Martha suggesting that her own Russian speaking community of immigrants has an interesting story to tell. Martha responded, "Please come into WMRA and tell it for The Spark!"
