Join us for the chat with America House guest Blayze Bishop! Here is some interesting information about Blayze:
"I graduated from Arizona State University last year with a degree in business. Rather than begin my career I chose to take a gap year, which has now turned into a second gap year. Since I began I've visited Central and South America as well as a lot of Europe including all of the Balkan countries. In total I've visited around 35 countries in my life and before I turn 30 I'd like to reach 100. I speak Spanish as a second language after studying it in school and taking language courses in Guatemala. While I am here in Kiev I am studying Russian and hope to reach a beginner degree of proficiency before I leave. That hardest thing I've ever done was summit a mountain in Bolivia at 6,088 meters above sea level, higher than Kilimanjaro!"

У травні цього року відзначали 200-ту річницю з дня народження американського поета Волта Вітмена. Художники і художниці студії Aza Nizi Maza звернулись до Вітмена навесні, аби привітати його з днем народження. У віршах Вітмен писав, що кінець кінцем готовий відмовитися від усього, крім розмаїття своїх облич. Саме вони — багатогранні характери Вітмена — стали темою виставки.
