In 1998 Olesia Matjasch had an accident and both arms were amputated. Thus she had to get used to performing her daily tasks with her feet. Among other things she started painting and drawing with her feet. Today Olesia Sichenko is 15 and sees her future in painting. This would not be possible without a scholarship as she lives in a difficult social situation.
