John Jay Senior Helps Provide Aid to Her Home Country Ukraine

JOHN JAY COLLEGE–When she sits down and speaks of Ukraine, Edita Biro has a smile on her face but says in her own time, she fights tears and cannot rest knowing her family and country are in danger.

“We have really put our lives on hold, whether it’s school, personal life, career lives,” she says. “Because we can’t sleep at night knowing what’s happening in Ukraine right now.”

The 22-year-old John Jay senior and Assistant President of the Model UN club founded the non-profit Donation for Ukraine with little experience. She knew there would be challenges but needed to do something.
