Being a young Ukrainian woman in Italy is a particular topic. Why? Well…I think you know the answer for this question even better than me. But let me tell you about my experience from my own Ukrainian lips.
I’m not going to talk about vodka and all that stuff. I guess that will be nothing new for you to hear about. I would like to tell about the way women of my nationality in Italy are treated by the opposite sex.
I’m a person who likes to…let’s say socialize. I socialize with a pretty considerable amount of people and all of them without any exception had a very interesting reaction after I told them where I came from. For some reason Italian people usually see me as an American or a citizen of some European country, but when they suddenly find out that I’m Ukrainian they (in this case I mean MEN) start looking at me like I’m a lottery jackpot that they got lucky to win, even though nothing has changed. I’m still the person that I was five minutes ago.
