A young girl dream was to become a teacher as her lovely father. She was studied at the Pastavy’ teacher college after World War II. It was not allowed to study in their native language, that’s why she along with other young people created a community ‘Union of Belarusian patriots’. Their main goal was to preserve and spread among the population of the Belarusian language and culture. However, she was sentenced by Soviets for 25 years. In GULAG she met with the outstanding Belarusian poet and social activist Larissa Heniyush. Alesya Umpirovich sincerely loves Belarus.
