    Polina Fradkin, was born in Siberia and raised in Michigan, which, to her dismay, wasn't any warmer. After graduating from the University of Michigan, she completed a Fulbright Research Fellowship in Israel. Her research centered around Israeli music. Since then Polina has committed aliyah and — to her grandmother’s chagrin — has no plans to return. Outside of her job as a TikTok star at a startup, Polina manages a jazz band called the Nigun Quartet. She enjoys salsa dancing, cleaning, reading, writing, and cooking for mass amounts of people. For more information please contact her mother.
