1. SuperSTAR – Loboda

2. Остаться с тобой (“Stay with you”) – Filatov & Karas

3. Она (“She is”) – Градусы

4. Здесь и сейчас (“Here and now”) – МакSим

Lucy Harnish has an English Literature degree with a double minor in Russian Culture and History from McGill University in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Lucy will spend two semesters with SRAS studying Russian as a second language in St Petersburg, Russia. Lucy hopes that by the end of her time in St Petersburg she will be able to reread the works of Turgenev, Dostoyevsky, and Tolstoy in the Russian language. She plans to utilize the experience she gains while studying abroad to pursue a degree in journalism.
