Anna Bondarenko. I’m 14 and I live with my mother in a small town in the north of Ukraine. I’m crazy about rock music that’s why I’ve learnt to play the guitar. I work hard at my lessons too, so I haven’t free time at all.
Stepan Kovalenko. I live at home with my family. We live in the country near Lutsk, which is the capital of Volyn Region and one of industrial centres of the Western Ukraine. I’m in the sixth form. My parents work on a farm and I often help them because I like animals.
Natali Boyko. I’m a musician and my husband works in a factory. We live with our two teenage children in the centre of Kharkiv in a flat. We like travelling about Ukraine and sharing our impressions after that. That’s why we try to describe everything we see.
Alex Zotov. I work for the Ukrainian airlines. I work at the check-in desk at the airport in Simferopol. I live with my wife and baby daughter in a small flat in Simferopol. The Crimea is a wonderful place, that’s why we are fond of travelling about our native region and climbing in the Crimean mountains.
