Human traffic is among significant problems of modern Ukraine and the whole world. This is an important topic and it should be conveyed to people because racism is still visible in the world. This is a result of many people not knowing history and do not understand such basic things. If more people knew the history, this issue would disappear. I am planning to create a series of works on this topic. Also, the topics on which I usually work are self-acceptance, one's uniqueness and shortcomings, and the exploration of sexuality. In addition to my presentation, I am interested in organizing an exhibition that includes performance elements.

Me & the residence of my soul.

If there's one thing I've learned from working together on a project, it's that teamwork can produce incredible results. When people with different talents, experiences and ideas come together, they are able to reach incredible heights. To inspire each other. This project was an extremely valuable experience for me. It allowed me to see how important it is to be able to work in a team and trust your partners. I am sure that it was thanks to this joint work that we were able to achieve such impressive results.

In addition, this project gave me the opportunity to develop my communication, leadership and organizational skills. It has been immensely beneficial for my personal and professional growth. By documenting everything on my blog, I received a lot of interest from followers. I am grateful to all participants of this project for their creativity and support. We have done a lot of work together and achieved many goals. This experience will forever remain in my heart and will inspire me to new achievements.

I am incredibly excited about my work collaboration with the curators on this new art project. This was my first experience working with curators and I cannot express my gratitude enough for all the support they gave me. The curators were not only my mentors. Their faith and support helped me unlock the potential of my creative idea and turn it into reality. Their confidence in me helped me to create a unique exhibition that I always dreamed of. Their support was incredibly important to my success. But first of all, I am grateful for the choice of my candidacy among hundreds of applicants.
Without such support, I probably would not have been able to gather enough courage to expose my work to the public. This faith in me inspires new creative solutions. Now that my first solo exhibition was successful, I feel incredible pride and satisfaction. This was an extremely important achievement for me, and I am grateful to Faber for his contribution to this success. This cooperation with the residence on a new art project gave me not only the opportunity to realize my creative ideas, but also opened new horizons for my art.

I was able to relax in a wonderful place and fully immerse myself in the work on the series. As a result, by the end of the residency, I managed to organize an exhibition and present my project to the world on a very important topic. A very important moment was that I was accepted together with my son and grandmother, which helped to combine my place as a woman, mother and as an artist. I received valuable advice and found new strength in myself for further development.

Thank you, Faber, for this unforgettable experience and incredible support. I am grateful for the fact that you believed in me and helped me make my dream a reality. It was incredibly important for my creative growth.
