Paul has studied Russian for 12 years. He completed 2 NSLI-Y Scholarships for Russian Language in high school and went on to major in both Russian Literature and International Relations at Stanford, where he received honors. 


At Stanford, Paul worked as a research assistant to the former U.S. Ambassador to Russia, Professor Michael McFaul, and received a Fulbright Scholarship to live and teach in Siberia for 10 months.
