Being a national delegate for Ship for World Youth Program is an important mission 12 Ukrainian representatives currently faced with. We still have 2 months to prepare everything for the long trip for learning new cultures and sharing about our beautiful and generous country Ukraine. It depends on us how will others understand what is Ukraine and who are the Ukrainians.
Ukraine is quite a big country – the biggest one in the whole Europe. Our delegates are residing in different corners of our country but for making great presentation we have met together in Kyiv (the capital of Ukraine) last weekend. We had a really tough schedule, cos we had to chose uniform, make photo session, prepare draft of national presentation.
Thanks to sport TM Peak all of us got trendy comfortable uniform for the trip which will highlight the Ukrainian Delegation among the other delegates. We will be bright! That’s all I can share for now regarding our outfit =D
Kyiv School of Photography kindly offered us a studio for photo shooting where we spent around 3 hours, but the main attraction for all the delegates was waiting us next day.
Rehearsal of national presentation started from group discussion where we tried to figure out the existing talents in the group. Well, we might be like, cos all of us has something to offer… actually, that’s why we are a team.
