This week on 49 Voices, we're hearing from Taylor Holman in Unalaska.
Holman is a high school senior, and she won first place in the statewide Russian language competition this year.
TRANSCRIPT: I first started taking Russian freshman year, actually, because I had cross country after school and I didn't want to do P.E. and cross country. So I switched into Russian and that's where it all started, I guess.
