About Your Instructor
Amar was born in Mongolia, raised in Poland, Ukraine, and Japan. Currently, she speaks five languages (Japanese, Polish, Russian, Mongolian, and English). She has lived in many different countries and understands the difference in religion, culture, values, and economy. Thus, Amar decided to study for the International Business with Entrepreneurship core, and help the world to become a better place through connecting world businesses. International Business is not just about doing business; it is also about helping each other’s countries such as exporting and importing medical supplies.
Amar works for Campus Recreation because she loves working out and boosting her stamina! Stamina is one of the essential things that we need to succeed in life. She also works for World Trade Center Denver on the Immigrant & Refugees Program. There she helps immigrant business owners from all over the world to succeed in creating their export & import business in Colorado. Amar recruits multilingual students to volunteer in World Trade Center Denver as well. Students who volunteer can gain real life experience at World Trade Center Denver.
Stay socially connected and have fun with text, voice and video all in one place.
Discord is a great way to stay connected with your communities and friends over voice, video and text in an all-in-one communication app. Chat and have fun in organized text-channels, talk to friends in open-voice channels, plan your next virtual meetup, or just keep in touch throughout the day. Video calls for up to 10 people is a newly added feature!
• Organized text-channels give you plenty of room to share videos, coordinate meetups, or just talk about your day without clogging up a group chat. Wave hello over video, easily watch friends stream their games, gather up for a screen-sharing session any time, or express yourself with all the GIFs and reactions you need.
• Open voice-channels make group hangouts easy. Grab a seat in a voice channel when you are free, and friends can instantly jump in without having to call. Up to 100 can join at the same time!
• There's an app for that! You can seamlessly switch between Discord on mobile and desktop.
Campus Recreation will be hosting daily Jackbox Party games, playing Kahoot Trivia Challenges, posting links to workouts you can do from home, sharing socially-distant engagement ideas and so much more!
Create your free account, check out our server and start having some stress-relieving fun with your friends and classmates today!
