Hello! My name is Sasha, I’m 23 and I am currently a freelance designer and illustrator. My story is pretty interesting, as it involves a lot of international transactions.
I am from Kazakhstan, however I’m only 25% Kazakh. I’m also 50% Ukranian and 25% Korean. Yet I speak Russian as my mother tongue… I finished high school and university in the UK, and that’s where I met my boyfriend. Who is half Colombian and half Irish, yet was born and raised in London…
The story gets more complicated, as we moved to Paraguay (South America), where I learnt Spanish.
When I decided I wanted to make comics, I was really adamant about trying to reach as many people as possible. Speaking three languages helped me achieve this idea, as now I simultaneously post three translations of my comics on my instagram.
It feels very rewarding and amazing, seeing people from so many different countries being able to relate to my stories. This shows how we might be from different countries, and speak different languages, but we are united in our feelings of love and fun.
