Hi there, my name is Roman Chichian, I am a senior anthropology student here at UW. I’ve lived in Seattle for almost 16 years now, although I was born in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan and lived in Istanbul and Moscow before moving here with my mother and brother. With lack of direction, my travels across the world have helped me settle with anthropology as my major, as a result ive had some fantastic anthro classes both at Seattle Central and here at UW, I couldn’t ask for a more engaging major. I am also studying Russian this year and trying to find more about myself and my roots, there is something about Slavic cultures that is very agreeable with me(besides the booze of course). In my free time I am a music enthusiast and collector, I brew beer, run, snowboard and enjoy long backpacking treks.
