Haley Bader

Haley Bader graduated in 2020 from Harvard University’s Davis Center for Russian, Eastern European and Central Asian Studies program. Before REECA, Haley served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Comrat, Gagauzia, Moldova and ran a journalism mentoring program with her local partners. She is a lover of Russian Orthodox iconography, the shenanigans of the domovoi, the good humor and hospitality she has found in her encounters with Slavic peoples and particularly a deep bowl of selyodka pod shuboy. She has written for Peace Corps Stories and New Eastern Europe and kept a travel and adventure blog – www.sundrytravels.com – while volunteering in Moldova.
