Mariia is a a keen photographer who works as a facility assistant at a rest home.

She often goes on hikes, is interested in psychology, but her number one love is photography. Mariia is originally from Russia, and loves to combine travelling with photography, though her passion lies in candid photography.

Mariia’s love of photography started many years ago, though she started her journey a year ago when she received a camera as a gift. She loved looking at and interpreting the theme of growth throughout the mentorship programme while sharing the experience and learning from the other participants.

She hopes to use her photography skills to show people how they can improve their quality of  life, and plans to continue photography for a long time.
