Ambitious and hard-working, but wrapped in the cocoon of parental love and easy success, I followed my husband from Moscow to New York City determined to pursue my budding academic career. Instead, I fell in love with the challenges and creative opportunities of motherhood and became a stay-at-home mother. Upon the collapse of the Soviet Union, my child-rearing travails acquired a well-defined practical goal: I wanted our two daughters to graduate from a top American college.

It has been said that nothing is certain in this world but death and taxes. I would add raising children to the list. This topic is bound to remain relevant for as long as humanity exists. Moreover, in our fast-changing world, parents have to prepare their children for the unknown. In that sense, all American parents are raising foreigners now. Today more than ever, the account of a foreign parent's success is beneficial to all parents alike.

Helen Trepelkov graduated summa cum laude with a master's degree in International Economic Relations from the Moscow State Institute for International Relations, dubbed the "Harvard of Russia" by Henry Kissinger. Shortly after, she followed her husband to New York City and unexpectedly became a stay-at-home mother.

Helen still lives in New York City with her husband and is now a stay-at-home grandmother, helping her two daughters, both graduates of Georgetown University, raise their children.
