About me

My name is Yana and I am 24 years old Ukrainian. I started my professional career at age 16 when I moved to Poland and started my Film and TV Production Management studies. While studying I was working in movie theatre as a Viewer Service. My main responsibilities were to be sure our guests gets the best experience in the cinema. I greeted and farewell our guests, showed them the right way to their sittings. I was responsible for making sure the screening process is running smoothly and that after each session there is a clean hall. After my Bachelor degree, I went for Company Management Master Studies and started working in European Muaythai Federation as an International Coordinator. There I had a lot of different duties such as running the office (emails, phone calls, documentation, meetings) and of course organizing national and international events (transportations, accommodations, visas, promotion etc.) I get a lot of experience while working for this company. When I finally graduated, I decided to try myself in a travel trade, as travelling always was one of my passions, and during previous job, I had many possibilities to travel around Europe and even Thailand. I get a job, as a Trade Operations Executive in LowcostTravelGroup, and despite I did not work there for long time (the company collapsed and went into administration), I get a great experience in corporate environment and customer support. After that, I decided to go traveling around the United States, as to visit this country also was one of my desires. Therefore, I went volunteering to YMCA in Seattle, WA. I met great people and fell in love with American culture and lifestyle. I have been to US for 5 month and visited different states including California. That trip inspired me and after I came back to Poland, I decided that I have to move to Los Angeles, as this is the most proper place for me to develop my film production career. Film industry always was my main interest, and I started to work for Red Viper Media Arts as a Production Assistant to get experience in film production. As I am knowledge hunger and quick learner, in a very short time I started working not only as a Production Assistant on set but also as a Production Manager coordinating office running (emails, phone calls, meetings scheduling, equipment rental, etc.) In addition, I had great possibilities to get experience on set in camera operating, sound recording and even interviewing people when needed. Meanwhile I also participated in organization of TEDxKazimierz conference as a Logistics Manager. This was also a big experience for me in event managing and coordinating. I contribute my time volunteering for TEDxKazimierz because I like meeting new interesting and inspiring people as much as I like event planning.
