I was born in Ukraine and came to America in 2000. I live in Vancouver, WA and love it. In high school I took three years of French but don’t remember a lot of it now. I love to read and my favorite author is Karen Kingsbury. One of my life goals is to go on a Europe trip because I love to travel and explore. I love my family, church, and warm sunny days.
