Emerging Europe Talks She’s Next with Nataliia Ievtushenko and Svitlana Chyrva 

“Before I started my internship at Visa, I [ran] a small eco-hotel in the mountains of Ukraine. It was a travel co-working space. It was after the first invasion in 2014. A lot of travel agencies were closed and travel managers needed to work somewhere so I decided to open a space where everybody could help each other and develop the travel industry,” Nataliia Ievtushenko, first an intern and now a full-time employee at Visa tells Andrew Wrobel in the eighth episode of Emerging Europe Talks She’s Next empowered by Visa.

“During the [internship] interview, I chose the product team. It’s very interesting for me to see how products are created from the beginning, from the idea until the product is done.” 

“I’m the head of the women’s Visa network inside the company. And I used to be the mentor for some of the newcomers and some of the women in the network. It’s really great to feel that your experience, your advice helps someone to grow or just to realise themselves, to achieve results or even to build a relationship with someone. It’s important not only for the mentee but also for the mentor just to know that they are helping the younger generation grow, find new paths,” Svitlana Chyrva, Vice President, Country Manager for Visa in Ukraine and Moldova, adds.
