‘I knew about USF for a while, since 2019, but joined only in 2022. It was a highly conscious choice for me, not unlike approaching a lady with a marriage proposal for me — however, instead of a lady there is a community of 400+ people. I am deeply in love with the values of this organization and with the vibe of the people that comprise it, and so would like to offer my effort and zeal towards making sure our organization is known by more young Ukrainians, ready to join us in the fight for the future of Ukraine.’
