Valentin is fluent in Spanish and English in addition to her native French. Now she is actively studying Russian and wants to improve her level in the future. In addition, she is very interested in history and geopolitics.

She says: “I am very curious, so learning something new is a top priority for me. I love gaining knowledge and putting it into practice”.

During the conversation, Valentin talked about her hobbies and interests. She noted that she likes the most ordinary things such as singing, cooking, hanging out with friends and traveling. Also the French student spoke about her impressions of Russia.

Grimaud Valentin Mathilde Marie emphasized:

“For a long time, almost from childhood, I dreamed of going to Russia. Thanks to the academic mobility program, I managed to fulfill my plans. There are many things in Russia that surprise me. I came from a small town, so Moscow seems huge to me, big buildings, big streets. In addition, the people here are very kind and friendly. I’m glad I came here”.
