Varvara (Varya) Koneva is a content writer at Artec 3D who – just to shake things up – dove deep into a completely new world of 3D scanning after more than 10 years of teaching, interpreting, and translating. Upon graduating in linguistics, Varya taught English and Intercultural Communication to university students, coordinated educational projects at local and international NGOs, and helped run a small language institute as director of studies. At the very same time, she served as a Peace Ambassador for the Council of Europe, volunteered as a translator for environmental projects in the wild, and translated film festivals and books.
Varya considers herself lucky to have studied, lived, and worked in heaps of beautiful places around the world – from her hometown of Irkutsk in Siberia next to the magnificent Lake Baikal, to Leuven, Bologna and Budapest in Europe, to the national parks of Arizona, California, and Washington in the US. Varya has always been immersed in writing about things making her truly passionate: intercultural dialogue, human rights, people and languages, and science. Heritage preservation has also been an important part of her life, so she is delighted whenever Artec 3D scanners are used for this purpose!
What Varya loves most about Artec 3D is the opportunity to learn and discover, and the chance to channel the voices of people at the forefront of technology and research. To her, there’s a vibe in Artec that says exploration and adventure; this makes writing about 3D scanning a journey, whether it’s a case study, a learning center article, or a YouTube video description.
Beyond her more recent technological quests, some things Varya considers her greatest achievements (so far!) are illustrating a children’s book, and opening up a small library. She enjoys reading and drawing, often with her little daughter Anna, traveling, and walking in the woods, which she documents in detail on her Instagram page.
