Blog It Forward- Oxana Noa Zubarev

If you are not familiar with the Blog It Forward Challenge (BIF) please read Moshe Naveh’s blog post.

My name is Oxana Zubarev or in short Ox, Oxa, Oxygen. I’m a new member of the SCN Collaboration Team based in Israel. As an intern I’m responsible for assisting my team members on various community projects. This year I graduated from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem where I studied International Affairs and East Asia Studies. I speak three languages fluently (Russian, Hebrew and English). I’m also proud of possessing an intermediate level in Japanese and the ability to eat a lot of sushi.

My future plans include continuing to higher education in my field and to learn as many languages as I can. The next language I would like to conquer is French, which I find to be both beautiful and challenging.     

I joined the community right before its turning point, in a period before the migration to the new platform. I was lucky to acquire knowledge about the previous platform, while being able to grow hand in hand with other members into the new and unexplored SCN.

A fun fact about my country:

Albert Einstein was one of the first board governors of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He was also offered presidency of Israel in 1952, however, he declined the invitation.

What do you think are the key elements for a successful project?

Cooperation: It is literally true that you can succeed best and quickest by helping others to succeed.

~ Napoleon Hill

What do you enjoy most in your work and why?

I enjoy the opportunity to work with great people that create inspiring success stories.

What was your dream job as a kid?

In order to verify that I was correct I had to turn to my mother to answer this one. As a kid I wanted to be an astronaut. The main reason was that all the boys in my class were bragging about their future professional space plans. Then I grew up a little and understood that probably I will not be an astronaut, but eventually we are all going to be space tourists, so I decided to be a teacher. 

Thank you for reading and kudos to xMoshe Naveh (Old Acct) for this fun and wonderful initiative, which I’ll forward to:

I would also be happy to blog it forward to Bala Prabahar, Miriam Lamey,  and sachin chavan.

I would like to ask them to answer one or all of the following questions:

  • What do you most enjoy on SCN?
  • Share a crazy fact/story about yourself that people don’t know.
  • What was the most fun project you ever participated in and why?
