My name is Martyanova Anastasia, I was born on November 7, 1998 in the city of Donetsk, Ukraine. When I was 13, my parents lost parental rights and I was placed into orphanage №1 in Donetsk. Through my classmate, I met a wonderful woman named Amanda Grefski. From that time till now, she is the closest and best person to me. I planned to study until grade 11, then go to Donetsk National University program of Foreign Languages, as I was very interested in studying English and other languages. But In 2014, when I was in grade 9 and the war began in my city, all my plan had to change. I managed to move to Kramatorsk and enroll in the Professional Center to study to be a social worker. In 2016, Amanda and I planned my tourist arrival to visit America; Liliya Valihun assisted us in collecting documents for visas. When I met Liliya, we found a common language and she suggested that I come to study at the Hebron Academy for girls the next year. So I went to study in Lviv. Now I am doing web design, frontend development, and studying database architecture.
