Blind American student Henry Hollithron to write on graduation paper on Russian history
Since his arrival in Yekaterinburg in August, Hollithron, who is fluent in Russian, has been staying with a host family residing near the Yekaterinburg city center. He uses public transportation and his guide dog to travel back and forth from UrFU.
During his studies at UrFU, Hollithron has taken courses in Russian language and history, as well as computer programming. Hollithron's interest lies in the Imperial period in Russian history, and he plans to focus his graduation thesis on that historical era. He is still considering his career options following graduation.
"I might become a lawyer, historian or translator," Hollithron said. "I love languages, history and IT. It's a tough choice."
