This website came to fruition in 2013 as I sat outside a testing center on 34th Street in NYC. Although it was breezy and I needed to avail myself of a *restroom, I first wrote down as many questions as I could recall from my exam, which had just ended. I then uploaded my strategy and notes – the very strategy and notes that helped me pass.
*The JC Penny’s at the Manhattan Mall on 34th street is the best site in terms of proximity and availability if you’re ever in that particular predicament
My parents moved from South Asia to NYC in the early 70’s so I was born and raised in Little Odessa/Brighton Beach, a Russian and Ukrainian neighborhood in Brooklyn.
Growing up in a cultural milieu of American, South Asian and Russian influence, I didn’t have the opportunity (misfortune?) of developing too much of an affinity for any tribe. Although my genetic material is South Asian and i’m technically made in the USA, most of my friends and folks outside my home environment spoke Russian. I fit in nowhere and everywhere – and that’s the way I like it.
I’m fluent in English and Urdu/Hindi and just a beginner with Spanish and Russian.
My favorite city is in Siberia. It’s called Novosibirsk. My favorite animals are my cat (Sophie) and a dog (Sif) who lives in Follafoss, Norway.
