Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky’s leadership is inspiring millions. It is empowering to see the incredible strength of the people and the country. This makes me so proud to be part of the Ukrainian culture. If you are a North Carolina resident or someone who would like to help, now you can.

The Ukrainian president has been leading his country in the fight to save his country. This fight is against the war aggression from Russian attacks. The work he is doing for the country is absolutely amazing. The president has been fighting for peace and trying to preserve the concept of a free democratic society.

President Zelensky is being nominated for the 2022 Person of the Year award and the Nobel Peace Prize in 2022. There is an online petition calling for him to receive these honors. If you would like, you can add your name to help recognize his bravery in the face of war. You can click here to sign the petition.
