Art & Outreach Co-ordinator
Free & Fit London
Alina Sapoznikova (MEd DPSI MCIL) moved to London from Lithuania about a decade ago, before studying Theology (BA) and Methodology of Teaching Ethics (MEd). Alina also did some fine art courses. Now Alina works as a freelance legal interpreter who is always looking for a moment of beauty and eternity chase.
Alina likes going with friends and on her own, in the moments of verbal tiredness, to wonder around the facts of memorable pasts and always renewing creativity of colour, shape and sound. So to speak, Alina likes visiting museums, galleries, fairs that brake her out of the daily routine circle and inspire her into the next day and give her a fresh idea or two.
Theatres and concerts are on the list as well alongside the flowers in parks and meadows. Alina is now doing a short course on how to make a poem with www.Futurelearn.com and is very eager to share some of her poems and read yours. P.S. If you organize something arty, crafty or ear catching or you want to join us, let us know!
Free & Fit Partner and Share the Miracle US Campaign Collaboration Project
ShareTheMiracle help individuals and organisations transform their communities through acts of kindness. We provide simple ways for people to connect, start conversations, build relationships and strengthen their communities. Anyone can get involved.
At Easter our ‘ShareTheMiracle Stations’ provide a reason for the local community to come together in support of the poor and marginalised. During the past 7 years, Schools, Businesses, Churches, Councils, Gyms and others have got involved and established stronger links with their communities as a result. Hundreds of volunteers have reached out to thousands of people including neighbours, colleagues, those unwell in hospital, the elderly, disadvantaged young people, victims of human trafficking, those with lived experience of mental ill health and more.
We are delighted to welcome Free & Fit as they help fly the ShareTheMiracle flag in the USA
