Igor: Ukrainian Pride

I was born in Ukraine. I moved to the United States when I was 7. Ukrainian culture to me is very important. I’ve tried to maintain my culture. I attend the Ukrainian church. I’m the president of the Ukrainian-American Society. It’s a cultural organization. We organize different events. Last week we did a picnic up on Mt. Lemmon. Anyone is welcome, anyone who is interested in Ukrainian culture. We also do different fundraisers for orphans in Ukraine. One thing I’m proud of is Ukrainian language. It’s a very beautiful melodic language.
