"I am myself, and I will never give up my heels for anything."
Nataliia Voronkova is a former adviser to the Ukrainian Defense Ministry and now runs her own non-profit. Since 2014, she has worked to provide medical training and equipment for Ukrainian forces fighting against Russia. She wears “red strappy sandals, beige pumps and other elegant footwear” with midi-dresses and full skirts as she drives her van throughout Ukraine to provide troops with first-aid kits, training, and medical advice (Associated Press). Voronkova said, “Every evening when I go to sleep, I ask myself, ‘What good thing have I done today?’ I want people to understand that they come into this world not only to eat, drink, and have fun every day, but to do something good. No day should be wasted.”
