Darina was born in Kryvyi Rih, where she received her secondary education. Since 2018 she has been a scout of Plast. She started her active public activity at school connected with volunteering and helping anti-terrorist operation fighters, organizing and participating in charity events. She is a co-founder of the social project VOLO, which aims to develop the volunteer movement among adolescents in Ukraine and America. In the summer of 2020, she became actively interested in the topic of libertarianism and activism, at the same time she became a member of a public organization in Kryvyi Rih “Young Liberals”, and shortly later that year she became an activist of Ukrainian Students for Freedom. Since 2020 Darina is a student of Lviv National University, she entered the Faculty of International Relations.
Ukrainian Students for Freedom is about a harmonious combination of self-development, activism and recreation with friends; it is about active and caring people who are always ready to help; it is about conversations that either provoke philosophical reflection or endless laughter. I am incredibly happy that I learnt about such a cool organization, and as a result, became part of it.
