"I am originally from Ukraine, Kremenchuk. In 2011-2013, I took Master Programme in International Migration and Social Cohesion (MISOCO). Before that I studied Sociology in Lund University, Sweden (MSc) and in National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy, Ukraine (BA). I love travelling, meeting lots of interesting and completely different people, and learning new cultures, as those all broaden your horizons and worldview. I think Erasmus Mundus is a great opportunity to learn the world via science/academy and simple everyday life interactions."
