Story written by Yana // @yanawex
20 days of my life in this apartment are coming to an end. I am 24 now. And I think to myself: “What is waiting for me next?” “Which countries I will discover?” “What does the future hold for me??!”
I remember when I was 17 years old, the city where I was born suddenly became too small for me and unbearably closed. At this time, I also didn’t know what was waiting for me, but I didn’t think so deeply. When you’re very young, you feel more than you think. At that point, I knew I had to move. So I decided to move to Kyiv and started studying fashion design.
At that time, I began to understand more about what I wanted. And then I already knew that Kyiv would become only a starting point for something more than that, it was only my first contact with the world.
Those 7 years in Kyiv have changed me. From a wild child from a small Ukrainian town with a lot of complexes and some strange boundaries in my head, there were no traces of that anymore left. During this period of my life, I had a photo session with a young woman. It opened up a lot of things in me.
I began to understand, that I am beautiful and my body is a gift from God and I am his creation. My supposed shortcomings became virtues. This photo session expanded my boundaries in my head. I wanted to open all the doors to the world and cross all the bridges, I had an unbearable thirst for adventure.
I began to feel and listen to my life and myself…
