Every student who has ever been on exchange knows how hard it can be to adapt to the new surroundings, get all your papers sorted, and adjust to the new timetable and academic process. It’s important to have someone you can ask for help at this time, a friendly face you can look for in a crowd of your new fellow students – and that is where buddies come in to save the day. At ITMO, these are found in Buddy System, a student club whose manager, Anna Gargalyk, I caught up with for this interview.
ITMakeup, a student club dedicated to promoting self-acceptance and educating its members on how to use makeup in their everyday life, faced a unique challenge in recent times.

We caught up with Maria Shvedova, Polina Guseva and Olga Kokorina to talk about how they're finding ways to thrive, their inspiration and future plans.
