Check out this AAS Moscow swag on Amazon!
Fast forward years later and I never regretted purchasing that shirt. It became my calling card, revealing a part of my life to those around me. A conversation starter, a shared moment of nostalgia with places and events only insiders would appreciate. It gave me a feeling of camaraderie wherever I went, from Cape Cod, MA to San Marco in Venice and event at the Alumni get together in downtown Beijing.
Now in my second year of working in the AAS Communications department, I am excited to feel like a part of this vast and supportive community, with more than half a century of history. From school staff to students, to parents, our AAS family is full to the brim with open, positive and eager to learn personalities. Now, I not only help design AAS swag but proudly wear it while at the school or out and about in Moscow or during my travels.
No matter if you spent twelve years at AAS or just a few months, you will always be part of the AAS family. Whether you witnessed the lines at the opening of the first McDonald's in Russia, the Olympic Games, the Queen's visit, or perhaps worked at AAS, you are forever an AAS family member.
We hope you enjoy this feature which allows you to order your favorite AAS t-shirt designs from anywhere in the world on Amazon.

Finally, if you have a sketch or a photo of an old AAS design you would like to recreate for your AAS reunion, let us know via firstname.lastname@example.org and we will upload these designs to Amazon. Perhaps something that brings you back to the backyard of Leninsky 78 where you represented your country at the International Fair, or your first Maslenitsa celebration, "sushkis", "blinis" and endless frolicking in the snow.
