Growing up, Tetyana Gavrysh wanted to be a doctor. But when the crucial time before her university years came, she opted to follow in the footsteps of her father and train to become a lawyer.
She doesn’t regret the decision. But her childhood interests remain and she does pro bono work for Ukraine’s Ministry of Health. By improving the nation’s health care, she is able to express her lifelong interest in medicine.
“My focus is medical reform, this is my challenge now,” she told the Kyiv Post. “I believe my input in this process will be great and the position of doctors will be better, so it’s good for me.”
