I am Anastasia and I am Ukrainian. I was born in the Donetsk region, where I also received a masters degree in psychology. I specialized in child psychology and enjoyed working with preschool children.

Because of the war that began in 2014, I had to leave everything and go with my family to the city ofCherkasy (Cherkasy region). To survive these difficult times, I began to engage in creativity and handicrafts. Soon we had to move to the city of Kharkov. New impressions, friends, a big, beautiful city, life was getting better, and plans were made for the future. All this collapsed in one day on 02/24/2022.

The war came into my life again. As if there weren’t those seven years that took me to adapt and realize that I would not return to my hometown. In May 2022, a new life began in England. Here I found a new family (thanks to my sponsors) and good friends. All the time that I am here, I feel the support of the British. Thanks to my sponsors and volunteers, I got a job and rented housing. I am also in college studying English. In my free time, I slowly return to creativity and look for beauty in walks and travels.
