Viiktoria Shvaher is the 2nd generation WAVE Youth Ambassador from Ukraine and decided to interview felloew activist Polina Lynova for THE POWER OF YOUTH series. Polina is a senior at LCC International University studying International Relations and Development. She is an alumna of the FLEX program, which is a scholarship student exchange program administered by the U.S. Department of State that let her spend an academic year in the USA. She has also done over one hundred hours of community work, participated in the European Youth Parliament, and was a part of the Student Council. She is passionate about political science, philosophy, and civic engagement. Volunteering is a way for her to change society in a better way, so she co-runs a local Drama Club and helps with fundraising  for local charity organizations. She believes that social media is a powerful instrument, so she often raises questions about feminism, body positivity, LGBTQ rights, youth political engagement on her social media pages, notably on Instagram.
