In the third episode of ‘Making it’ in Western Europe, we talk with Dinara, our Lazy Women social media manager.

Dinara was born in Kazakhstan and moved to Budapest, Hungary, in 2018 to pursue an MA degree in Cultural Heritage. As Covid-19 coincided with her graduation, she decided to stay and build her new life in Europe. Witnessing tumultuous political environment and undergoing a personal identity crisis, in this episode, Dinara ponders on the implications and choices of leaving /returning, on finding purpose in life, and ways of giving back to the community and people who make us who we are.
