Kateryna Potapenko, journalist and radio-host from Kyiv, Ukraine, volunteering for WSCF-Europe since 2019. My journey with WSCF-Europe began in 2018.
Being previously quite acquainted with social work and activism in Ukraine I never thought that volunteering experience can possibly become not just a hobby, or kind of a social duty, but that it also means to be a part of a family-like community, proving that in every journey – people is what really matters. With a master degree and professional experience in social communications, I enjoy contributing to the educational and advocacy campaigns and I’m grateful that WSCF-team can provide a real purpose and awareness that your creativity and passion is needed internationally.
Currently I’m a part of the preparatory committee of the future study session “Confessing Church today – combating right wing populism as Christians”, where I’m involved in planning the program of the session, communicating with applicants, creating a master-class etc. In 2019, I helped to organize a local event in Kyiv, concerning the topic of the youth extremism. As a participant I took part in the study session in Strasbourg at 2018 and in lingua franca training in Georgia, 2019.
WSCF is doing a great job empowering youth nowadays and inspiring young people worldwide, showing them that they can be a letter in a code that can make a world a better place for real.
