Sasha Zenich is a former street kid and future artist and photographer!

Sasha came to “Pilgrim Republic” a few years ago. He and his three sisters grew up in a dysfunctional family: his father did some robbery, and end up in prison, and his mother was drunk all the time, and never took care of the children. She made them go the streets to collect cigarette butts, buy alcohol. Often, when parents got drunk, they would beat Sasha. Their apartment was a common party place, where neighboring alcoholics came to drink. Sasha started to run away from home. He first appeared on the street when he was 7 years old. He lived in basements, and sewer manholes where started to smoke, drink, and sniff glue.
