Daria Syroid is an assistant professor at the Philology Department of the UCU Humanities Faculty. She has worked at the Ukrainian Catholic University since 2015. She researches medieval and early modern Ukrainian literature. In 2020, she was awarded a professor’s stipend from the Darnitsa Pharmaceutical Company.
Daria Syroid knows all her students by name. Her lectures always include dialogue and feedback. And she loves walking in the mountains, which her father taught her about in childhood. Syvulya, Grofa, Gorgany, and Chornohora are just a few of the mountains she has managed to conquer.
“When there’s a road, it needs to be travelled. You can also use this metaphor for everything in life. Even if it’s difficult, you must travel it. It’s also important with whom you are traveling. On your way, you need to know how to interact with the people near you,” says Daria Syroid.
