I'm Marina and I'm the creator of channel. This means I pretty much take care of ALL the research, planning and production (minus the filming and most of the editing).

Welcome! Bienvenue! Willkommen!

If you just stumbled upon this page and have no idea what it's all about - three words can sum it up: Travel. Culture. Dating. And this doesn't mean I date on camera. Or talk about my dating experiences. Clearing it up cause I get this question all... the.. time.

From a funny series showcasing cultural shocks, to interviews with locals, to reaction videos on languages -- my goal is showcase that YES, culture plays a large part in determining who we are and what's more - let's celebrate our differences.

Why dating you say? It is a very niche topic. One that didn't exist on Youtube when I started the channel three years ago and still doesn't to my big surprise. But what better way to get to know a culture than to connect with locals, make some friends and date that someone? Connection is the key to understanding culture.

However, let's be honest - Youtube is a tricky platform. Even with thousands and millions of views (and some of my videos go viral) , it is impossible to live or even survive on the ad revenue (especially after all the changes Youtube has made recently). Attempting to up the quality while not having enough to decently pay the videographer. Traveling out of your pocket and staying in hostels while working two jobs. Not having any funds to pay the actors. Not having much to even pay yourself. This is the reality of trying to maintain the quality on Youtube without any financial support. This is the honest reality I wanted to put out there. 

Your support could mean literally everything. With enough budget I could keep up the production quality without constantly worrying (do I have enough? Will I have enough?) and have a happy and fulfilled team getting compensated what they deserve. I could travel more and make quality videos on the road. I could try out trickier and new types of content. Most importantly, it would mean so much to know that people not only love the channel, but love it enough to offer that extra support. 

The weekly videos will continue coming every week, but if you're with me on this we can make them so, SO much better! More of what YOU want to see, more travel stuff, and more quality. Let's go beyond our borders together!

Quick Points About Me

- I'm Russian, born in Moscow and I came to Toronto, Canada at the age of 12 (I'm not Brazilian, Argentinian, Spanish or Portuguese as I often get asked. Thanks for the compliment though!)
- I used to work as an English/Drama High School teacher and have taught for a few years before getting into Youtube. I used to act years ago. I wasn't very good so I stopped.
- My inspiration came from traveling the world and getting to know various culture (this is the official version). But seriously - it was mostly through dating men from different countries (this is the real one)
- When I started I made videos for two years without knowing what I was doing but knowing I loved it. I used to spend all my time at work sneaking around to do these and dreaming about doing it full time until I got my wish. Took me a year to really get to it though. It was scary but felt right.
- I don't have a team. I'm my own team really. I work with a videographer/editor and pretty much pay him out of my pocket to make these
- This seriously feels like a calling to me as cheesy as it sounds. But if you feel the same way about something - I strongly encourage you to do it. If it feels right you are most likely on the right path.
- I have a second job teaching English online. My dream is to finally quit it and do this full time without fear of uncertainty. My other dream is to finally get a team of people: comedy writer, marketer, professional sound/video and someone to organize me when I need it.

Any other questions? Feel free to ask.
