Vlad Guz

Ukrainian refugee building support for his country

Vlad was born in Ukraine in 1997 and lived there until 2022.

As a student Vlad was recognised at school and university with honors and scholarships. At University he enjoyed the challenge of working so, before graduation, he was already a Marketing and Communications Team Leader in an international holding. He’s passionate about developing strategies, leading the design team, promoting products, and implementing creative approaches in his work. He is proud of his projects with Warner Bros. Entertainment, Valve, Ubisoft, Bandai Namco and WePlay AniMajor.

Vlad loves traveling and, at a young age, had already visited eighteen countries. In 2022 he came out and now supports the LGBTQ+ community. In 2022 Vlad and his partner devised the idea of a Ukrainian march as part of PrideWA’s Pride Parade, supporting LGBTQ+ people fighting for freedom in Ukraine because of the Russian invasion.

Even as a child he was a dreamer. One of his dreams has come true – to be a TEDx speaker.
