Olessia Willybiro

Trustee 

Not a typical Russian, Olessia lived in Libya and Syria through her childhood, and graduated in Moscow with Masters in Finance. After that she went on a double degree programme to study (Business administration) and then worked in France, and moved to China for a year before settling in the UK.

Olessia has been quite successful throughout her career in the private sector working in different industries and delivering long standing outcomes. With all acquired experience and skills she gained, it was high time to give back more to society, so Olessia started engaging with the non-profit sector on different levels.

Outside of her day-today job, she raises two kids, mentors disadvantaged teenagers through Safer London, and she is an active member of the PTA and recently became a Trustee for Youth Access.
