This stuffed animal may seem random at first however it has a fair amount of meaning behind it. This toy was gifted to me by my now passed grandfather. It's from the 2014 Olympics that were held in Sochi, Russia. My mother immigrated from Russia at the age of 15 during the cold war. It always interests me what it must have felt like to arrive in a foreign country and be assumed as a Russain operative. This toy allows me to remember my family history in a country many Americans feel is our strongest rival.
