“I lived in Zaporizhzhya and was just enjoying going to the gym, dancing and developing myself before the war started. My dad left for Greece 4 days before the war started. My mother, stepdad, dad and I left for Greece too and now I have residency there. Some of my male friends who already turned 18 have had to stay and fight. Likewise my mother’s brother is still in Ukraine to help protect our country. I am visiting my old school friend, Taras who has fled to Denmark. Even though I have the freedom to travel anywhere in the world, I just want to go back home to my country and my city. It is where I belong”
