Tell us about you, your organization and/or your current/future project(s).
I am an English teacher and an activist of the NGO “Social Initiative Institute”. This organization was created in 2013 by a group of enthusiasts as a long-term project for change in society.
Why and when did you become an active citizen?
I have become an active citizen because I wanted social change in my community. I became active within my NGO when I have read their advertising about volunteering.
What are your hopes, goals and expectations for the future and how do you plan to realize them?
I hope to educate as many people on this topic as I can. I plan to share my knowledge about Digital Storytelling through seminars in my town and villages throughout the whole Ukraine. I would like to raise funding for the further promotion of the project.
What are you wishes for the future of Ukraine and for yourself?
I wish that Ukraine will join the EU eventually and that the quality of living will rise and young people will no longer be obliged to go abroad for better life. I also wish that more people within Ukraine will become active citizens.
YOU are Active in Ukraine (The project is called Active YOUkraine)…Where do you locate yourself within the Ukrainian society?
I locate myself as active youth.
