Mykhailo moved from Ukraine to Spokane with his wife and children in February of 2017. Before moving to Spokane he had worked as a welder for 25 years. He enjoys the rest and good food he finds in Spokane. In his free time he likes to play with his grandchildren and spend time with his family. He also enjoys working at Global Neighborhood and going to school to improve his English. Mykhailo is grateful for all of the support he and his family have received in Spokane from individuals and organizations like World Relief.
