Activists of the initiative group Vmeste ("Together") report that a volunteer Maria Soldatenko became a finalist of the prestigious beauty contest in Canada.
Maria is a Prize laureate of the Minor Academy of Sciences of Ukraine for her research paper on the symbolism in the works of Lesia Ukrainka. In her 17 years, she won a scholarship and went to study in Canada.
But that did not stop the girl to return to her front-line city to help the defenders during her vacation. Together with other volunteers, Maria went to the front line, and helped the soldiers. The headquarters of the initiative group does not stop their activity and continue to help the ATO soldiers.
Our activists hope that the Mariupol resident will be able to honorably represent their city in the finals and take the prize.
