Completing a ropes challenge course at nearly 30 feet in the air was no sweat for international student Alina Cherepanova. “It wasn’t difficult,” the Russia native says. “I go to the Maverick Activities Center’s group classes every week and am prepared for physical activities.” Cherepanova participated in the challenge at the 2011 International Students Inc. Tejas Spring Break Retreat in East Texas. The MBA student came to UT Arlington in fall 2010 as part of the State Department’s highly competitive Edmund S. Muskie Graduate Fellowship Program, which helps Eurasian countries transition to market economies by providing citizens with intensive academic study and professional training. After a summer internship, she plans to return home to work as a project manager in the sales department of Russia’s largest bank. “UTA has helped me discover myself,” Cherepanova says. “It has given me a deeper understanding of the role of a leader and the responsibility that comes with it.”
