My name's Lana, I'm 21 y.o. and I'm from Ukraine (Luhansk region). I have lived for 4 years in the occupied territories because I didn't have a chance to move somewhere since the war had begun in 2014. Then in 2018 I moved to Sievierodonetsk as I entered the University but, unfortunately, after almost 4 years of amazing life of my own I had to move again because of the Russian war actions. For now I live in my friend's house in the western part of Ukraine and kind of feel safe. But sometimes I think that it's so unfair that I always need to escape somewhere and now I need to do it again.
However, I'm responsible, open-minded, and quite independent, but not very talkative and shy person; but I want to travel and meet new people and get more knowledge and experience. My major is philology and translation and I've also been a teacher/tutor of English for teens for two years now.
Don't know what else to add but I'd be really grateful for the given help in such difficult times for Ukraine.
My full name is Kateryna Bublii. I am 21 years old, and this year I will finish my studies at the university and receive a bachelor's degree. My major is philology and translation. I lived in the east of Ukraine, in the Luhansk region. However, the Russian invasion of Ukraine has changed the life of my family. After spending the first three weeks of the war in the basement escaping the bombs, my family made the decision to evacuate me. So now my family is completely separated. I live in the western part of Ukraine, my dad is in the central part, and my mom is in the northeast. Now I have no opportunity to return home, as my city has been occupied.
Talking about my personal qualities, I'm mostly an introvert, and it's stressful for me to meet new people, but I'm trying to get rid of this character trait. Despite my introversion, I am a responsive, responsible person and ready to help if my help is needed.
I have little work experience. I worked for two months as a waitress in a hotel restaurant in Bulgaria and received positive recommendations. However, the main area in which I would like to realize myself is teaching English. My main goal is learning English and teaching methods. At the moment I have little speaking practice, so communication may be difficult for the first time. However, I hope that this experience will help me to speak English confidently and improve my level so that I can return to Ukraine and be able to help children and teenagers to learn English.
