A perfect synthesis of beauty and intellect defines Olya Schechter. A modern princess, as many call her, was born in Moscow into a family of diplomats. She traveled intensely throughout her childhood until the age of 16 when she arrived to New York. A perfumed diary has always been her best friend. Full of colorful observations and humorous short stories it captured Olya’s experiences throughout her years in the U.S. “The moment is wasted if no one captured it. Life is too precious to waist,” says Mrs. Schechter. Olya has always been fascinated by the life stories of Russian immigrants in New York. Her first book LOVE ME, NY inspired by many friends and acquaintances represents a fictional world of Russian women in Manhattan.
