Rarer than a Wu-lly mammoth in suburban Jersey, hotter than a Wu-ll sweater in that summertime Tokyo heat. Ask him about food.

NYU Shanghai '17

Krista enjoys playing rock, paper, scissors with kids, but has realized her version of the game is outdated. She lives in Shanghai and enjoys eating jianbing, a traditional breakfast food, at any time of the day. After three years in China, Krista will now be moving to Yangon to work at a local social enterprise that uses design thinking to create products for rural communities.

Greg Zegas

Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia

Boston University '15
Major in Econ and Environmental Analysis and Policy
Hometown: Charlestown, MA

Greg’s proudest moment was once being voted most likely to win the survival TV show “Naked and Afraid.” But he plans to be neither naked nor afraid in Mongolia’s frigid climate, mostly because PiA told him not to get medivacced. If he can manage that, he’ll be able to pursue his dream of supporting clean energy development in Mongolia. Stay tuned.

Katya Alexeeva

Chiang Mai, Thailand
Princeton University ‘15
Major in Public and International Affairs
Hometown: Cheboksary, Russia
I am an almost-but-not-really adult from Russia, who fell in love with Hong Kong and fangirls over it. I am both extremely lazy and tenaciously social. I love cute stationery, Netflix suggestions, and photobombing tourist photos. I specialize in taking a long time to reply to texts, but always replying in essays.
