Born in Ukraine, at 13 she learned English in two months, at 16 she shopped in black markets as a buyer for her uncle’s store, and later was a Freedom Support Act exchange student. Now she’s the President of our Parish Council. Who is she?
In brief, Anya Aslanova has a track record of success in many areas including marketing and strategy planning, project management, creative design, and conflict resolution.
Born and raised in Kiev, Ukraine, Anya took three different transportation systems to get to school every day. She was selected to serve as class treasurer for grades 1-3, making her responsible for collecting around 350 rubles of milk & lunch money.

Anya and her husband Nick are co-owners of Mythopeic Industries, a small arts organization that strives to promote, produce, and stage performances by internationally and nationally known eclectic artists and musicians to the city of Indianapolis. They have two pre-teen sons and enjoy the company of her mother, Nellie, who arrived from Ukraine in 2007 and now lives with them. Nellie is also loved and respected by the Joy of All Who Sorrow congregation.
Anya and Nellie lived in the area of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor incident at the time it happened. That story will appear here at a later date.
