Fjodor Islamaj is one of the very small number of talented people who Travel for Teens hires from a huge applicant pool each year. This will be his first summer as a Senior Counselor with Travel for Teens, and we can’t wait to travel the world with him. When he’s not teaching teens about the wonders of international travel, he’s teaching them physics and coaching soccer in Worcester, MA. Here he is folks!
