Life is beautiful. Cherish every moment, appreciate what you have, and find joy in the present.
As a Ukrainian orphan, I faced many challenges and uncertainties. I was abandoned as an infant in a hospital and brought to an orphanage. At age 11, I was welcomed into foster care, but I still felt alone and unsure of my future. When I turned 18 and lived without a guardian, I finally had the opportunity to focus on my aspirations. With only a few dollars to my name, I took a chance and immigrated to America. Despite hardships of many Ukrainian orphans, I never let my past hold me back.
