Hi everyone, I am so excited to be able to launch my campaign on Beam.
Since Russia invaded my country, my life has been turned upside down. I have had to leave my country and my city, Kyiv, to come to the UK with my 6-year-old son.
This is the second war of my life as I live in the Donbas region.
The last couple of years have been difficult. I had health problems to overcome. Then COVID-19 hit. I had to leave my old career as an Assistant Manager of a large government organisation. I travelled by bus with my son for 24 hours out of the Donbas region and moved to the Kyiv region where I worked as an English teacher.
Just when I was starting to feel settled, the 2022 war happened. I had to leave my family and my parents in Ukraine and come to the UK with my son. I am now living with sponsors in Britain.
But I have remained positive and focused on the future. My dream is for the war to stop as soon as possible. In the meantime, I want to make the most of my time in the UK and hopefully have my own house in England one day.
With regards to work, I am always open to new skills and new options for me. It would be great to have a job with a chance to progress within the framework of the company.
Outside of work, my son is who makes me happy every day. Or speaking to my parents back in Ukraine. I also love sports and try to stay fit through swimming, yoga and cycling. These are my favourite kind of activities.
It is very touching to have people's support. I am very thankful for any support. I look forward to having stability again in the not so distant future.
