Full time Student and also assistant at the Ukrainian School
Object: Ukrainian Scarf
Interview took place at the Ukrainian School in Holland Park, London
Christina was born in Lviv and came to the UK as a young child. Christina chose the scarf as when she wears it she feels a connection with Ukraine and as it is an unusual pattern in the UK – it is something that she gets asked about and so is able to pass on information about Ukraine. Christian works at the Ukrainian School in London and is active in the community – going to events and is part of the Ukrainian theater group. These activities and interests are important to Christina as a way of keeping her sense of Ukrainian identity.
