Volunteer from Ukraine

Salut! My name is Uliana, I’m 25 y.o. and I come from Ukraine. I’m a positive, friendly, open-minded, creative person, who is always ready to help and to give a support. My interests and hobbies include playing the piano, singing, painting and drawing, taking photos, learning foreign languages, reading and travelling. By the way, I visited six countries such as Romania, Moldova, Hungary, Bulgaria, Italy and Spain.

I completed the full courses of Yuriy Fedkovych Chernivtsi National University as a Specialist In Musical Arts in 2017. I graduated from Mykola Ivasiuk Chernivtsi Art School in 2009. 
I love working with kids and already had an experience in working with them. I have got three charming nephews and I often look after them. When I was a student I had some practice in the secondary schools and in the primary music school as well.

The opportunity to obtain and to share gained unique experience and knowledge in the future, the desire to my own growth, work in the sphere which is interesting and close to me and eventually faith in myself and in succes, inspired me to take part as a volunteer in the project “NON-Formal enlights RURAL”, I thought, that it is exactly what I was thinking of, where I could help and learn a lot.

The work on this project is an incredible chance to contribute to the creation of something new, to expand my horizons and to share my experience and knowledge with others.
