Now is the time to help steer Ukraine towards a positive future and provide support to younger generations to help create positive change for the country. Our ultimate goal is to create a country which creates opportunities; where people from other nations want to come to our country because of the standard of life and the opportunities available. Our nation is has never performed to her potential but now it is up to us to make this a reality. Diaspora are true Ukrainians because they had to maintain their identity in lands where they are the minority; their image of the motherland is romanticized. This has led to disappointment from their attempts to aid and support Ukraine. The reality and fantasy are not the same. It is our challenge and desire to change this for the good of all Ukrainians.
