I am a Ukrainian teacher of English in Ivano-Frankivsk, Ukraine. I have a master's degree in linguistics and literature from V.Stefanyk Precarpathian University in Ivano-Frankivsk. I am also a photographer, and my art has appeared in different exhibitions. In 2009, I got a Fulbright scholarship to study art in the U.S. I attended Texas Tech University, and, in 2012, received a master's degree in fine arts.
