UNWLA President

“The hope for an optimistic future, which glimmered in the eyes of the young and the older protestors of EuroMaidan, has abruptly turned into despair… Today, I believe it is fair to say that no one has any idea what the future holds for the citizens of Ukraine. These are historic, yet frightening, times.” This was my opening paragraph in the February 2014 issue of Our Life.


As of January 1, 2015, Ulana Zinych, UNWLA First Vice President, reluctantly resigned from her post due to personal reasons. Both personally and on behalf of the entire UNWLA leadership, I would like to thank Ulana Zinych for her dedication to the organization by filling the post of First Vice President since May of 2008. We are most fortunate that Roma Shuhan, UNWLA Honorary Member and a longtime member of the Executive Committee, has agreed to assume this post. We look forward to working with her.

You will be missed, Ulano!
Welcome, Romo!

New Branch at Naples, Forida

Dominica Annese, center, admires a traditional Ukrainian blouse during a recent meeting with the newly formed Naples branch of the Ukrainian National Women’s League of America inc. Annese was brought to tears during the meeting, recalling the difficulties of life in Ukraine. “we take many things for granted in the U.S., but in Ukraine those things are very difficult to attain,” she said.

Members of the Naples chapter of the Ukrainian National Women’s League of America will tell you about a history with Russia that’s scarcely taught in school—a history involving a politically-induced famine and an insatiable blood lust for power. But despite that, Ukraine has kept its culture alive with an unwavering sense of determination, pride and grace.
