Maria was born and lives in Kyiv. In 2020, after graduating from school, she became a student at Taras Shevchenko Kyiv National University, Faculty of History, where she studies the history of Ukrainian and world diasporas.
Since school, she has been interested in the history, culture, traditions, and mythology of different countries of the world.
She learned about the libertarian movement in the summer of 2022 and immediately decided to join the “Ukrainian Students for Freedom” after completing the Leadership Program.

“USF is a community united by the idea of ​​freedom in all aspects of life and the goals they strive to implement. Also, “Ukrainian Students for Freedom” is about conscious, active, and friendly people who are interested in the development of Ukraine and creating a better future. For me, the journey with USF is just beginning, but I already understand that it will be something incredible! “
