You'll hate yourself if you miss this

I find the most wonderful things on agent's and editor's blogs. This is one of them that led me to a wonderful talent I would otherwise have missed.

This is from Ukraine's Got Talent. Ksenyia Simonova won the contest with her emotional recount of Germany conquering Ukraine in the second world war. The calm and conflict she creates while artisticly narrating the sadness of her beloved country leaves me feeling humbled. At the end, she writes, "You are always near."


  1. I wanted you to know that I am proud of your hard work in recovery. I am also proud that you offer your support to me. It means a great deal. Continue to grow, and take care of yourself. Hugs! Maria

  2. This is an incredible talent. I was moved and by the reactions of the crowd, they were overwhelmed by the power of it.

    It's incredible, isn't it, the forms that storytelling and art can take? I'm awed by this lady's abilities.
