Olena Kagui
Journalist and photographer in the Czech Republic

I was born in Kiev, Ukraine but I've lived in the Czech Republic for 18 years. I have a BA in International Relations from Anglo American University and my passion is journalism and photography. I have published articles in the Prague Post, Youth Time Magazine and IWAP’s The Bridge. I won the excellence award for my Abortion Laws in Ohio article that I wrote during my exchange at Kent State University. In March this year I got a grant from the Prague Freedom Foundation to report on the situation in Ukraine and I spent a week there. Then in July I had a charity photo exhibition where I auctioned the photographs that I took in Kiev and I raised 13,500 czk for the Organization for Aid of Refugees in Prague.
