Completing a research placement while studying for a master’s at the University of Leeds was a crucial stage in my personal and professional development.

I am originally from Ukraine, from a small town near Kyiv. 

In 2019, I was accepted into Kyiv Polytechnic University to study applied mathematics and finance, a difficult but fulfilling path. Life in Ukraine presented its own set of challenges, such as corruption in the education system and facing gender discrimination both at school and university.

I began my healthcare career working as a junior nurse at a hospital in Singapore, after graduating from Nanyang Polytechnic School.
