When I was young, I could always see my parents fighting outside of my window. I turned 12, and I could see only tanks outside of my window. I don't remember when our streets filled with tanks and soldiers. I just know tomorrow is not promised.

In 2014, Lina was caught up in the War of Donbass, part of the broader Russo-Ukraine War. Her mother urged her and her younger sister to leave if they could, and researched safe destinations online. She found Taiwan and arranged for Lina to move there.

Press me to go. She said, "Lina, you might hate me for doing this, but you will thank me later." I was crying a lot after I moved, because I never wanted to leave my family. But my mum always tells me to appreciate this chance.

With her mother's words ringing in her ears, Lina made the move. After settling down, she was astonished to realize just how safe she really was here.

It turns out, Taiwan is like my mother said. I can't believe I can walk on the street without fear, and sleep without the sounds of gunshots.

Lina sends all her earnings home to help her family. The video has attracted hundreds of warm comments encouraging Lina to stay strong.

“當我還小時,記得總是能在窗戶外看爸媽吵架,在我12歲的那年,窗外的景色卻變成了坦克車,我不記得從何時開始,我家的街道開始佈滿坦克和士兵,我只記得當時不知道能不能活到明天。”

原來Lina歷經2014年頓巴斯戰爭,當時內戰讓烏克蘭政局動盪不安,母親就鼓勵她和妹妹,有機會就離開家鄉,後來還特別上網找資料,發現台灣很安全,逼她來台灣生活。

“母親她逼我來,她說,你現在也許會恨我逼你去,但以後你會感激我。我搬家後我常常哭,因為從來沒有想要離開我的家人,但我媽總是告訴我,要珍惜這個機會。”
