Alina
Summer 2000 - On a trip to Chicago, I ran into Alina on Rush Street. Alina is a 19-year-old, blonde Ukrainian immigrant from New York City who was visiting Chicago and she spoke English with a cute accent. She and her slightly older lady friend were curious about her images and story being displayed on the net and kept asking me questions. Alina is a pianist who had attended the conservatory in her home town of Kiev prior to her immigration to the United States in 1998. Currently, she gives private music lessons and also teaches music at a studio.
