About Me

If you want to describe me in three words, it will be "literature", "traveling", "volunteering". I'm crazy about literature and I read everywhere. I like novels about war and love, such as Remarque, Hemingway. And I'm interested in psychology.

Also I like traveling as It is the inspiration and step to something new for me. In my opinion, discovering new places around the world is so important for everyone. Because it is an acquaintance with new culture, new people. This is new unforgettable experience. I have been to almost every Ukrainian city. I think, firstly I should start discovering our country. So, I can recommend, what you must visit in Ukraine.

I'm crazy about volunteering and social activities. I'm an ex-head and a mentor of new members of the NGO "Foundation of Regional Initiatives" in Odesa, a trainer of volunteer management in the NGO "Ukrainian Volunteer Service". All of these activities are my volunteering.

Also I work as a project manager in volunteering program "Building Ukraine Together". We help families with many children, people with disabilities and youth centers. I really like what I do. I have a conversation with dozens of people every day. Although I am often exhausted in the evening, I'm so happy, because I understand that my day was very useful.

I am very attentive to the rules of the hosts' house, an open-minded, unassuming, and easygoing person. I have very interesting stories that I can tell you, but if you want I will be very quite.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like listening to instrumental music when I write a new article for my work. I usually listen to music by Abel Korzeniowski, Frédéric Chopin, Ludwig van Beethoven.

I like listening to rock when I wake up and clean my flat. My favourite bands are "The Score", "Måneskin". And I listen to Ukrainian bands such as "Odyn v kanoe", "Karna", "Vivienne Mort", "Kazka" and etc.

I read a lot of books. I love Remarque's novels. My favourite novels are "Three Comrades", "The Night in Lisbon", "Heaven Has no Favourites". And I like "A Farewell to Arms" by Hemingway, "The Great Gatsby" by Fitzgerald, "Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage" by Murakami, "The Little Prince" by Exupery, "The Book Thief" by Marcus Zusak. Also I like psychology literature such as "The Gods Always Travel Incognito" and "The Man Who Wanted to Be Happy" by Laurent Gounelle. I can talk about books from day to night.

I like thrillers, dramas and romcom. I really don't remember the titles of the movies I've seen.

Teach, Learn, Share
