Sofia, Mykykta and Tosha started their adventure with journalism with a ten-session-long Basic Journalism: News & Opinion course run by Stanislaw Skarzynski, the director of the Oxford School for the Future of Journalism. Ukrainian students’ participation is sponsored via the OXSFJ Refugee Scholarship Scheme. A

Born in 2009 in Kyiv, Sofia Vorobei is interested in the influence new technologies have on modern movies, TV shows, and music. She is considering building her career in the acting field and is interested in looking at how this particular path is often affected by one’s place of residence or financial situation.

Mykyta Yaremenko was born in 2006 in Ukraine’s capital. Like many other Ukrainians, he left his hometown at the beginning of 2022 when Russia attacked Ukraine and moved to Wroclaw, Poland. In the future, he hopes to participate in the fields of politics and international relations.

17-year-old Anatolii Mishustin now resides in Amsterdam. Moving to the Netherlands was a decision first and foremost motivated by the ongoing war in Ukraine. He keeps his hand on the pulse of modern media and underground culture and plans to contribute towards Harbingers’ Magazine culture section.

They joined a group of Ukrainian teenagers already involved in the project — including Sofia Radysh, whose work secured her a year-long tenure as the editor-in-chief of Harbingers‘ Magazine, and Sofiya Tkachenko, who is currently the Newsletter & Social Media editor and the first recipient of the Harbingers’ Fellow Scholarship.

After successfully completing the course, all three students joined Harbingers’ Magazine as permanent writers and members of the Editorial Board.
