Young professional, LL.M.student
I am working as a lawyer assistant at Ukrainian NGO “Eastern Ukrainian Center for Civic Initiatives” and doing my master’s degree at Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv. At the NGO my main duty is to provide legal aid to internally Displaced Ukrainian people. Also, I am an active member of ELSA where I also organize different events connected with human rights.
I believe that Ukraine should deepen its relationship with the EU as this cooperation will guarantee that Ukraine will become a prosperous democratic state. Thus, I have participated in various projects connected with the EU in a way to gain more knowledge on the topic. But now I am excited to become an Ambassador and to implement my own initiatives directed to sharing European values in Ukraine and to exchange my experience with others.
