Lidiia is also a student of the Cardinal Bea Centre for Judaic Studies (Pontifical Gregorian University, Rome, Italy).
She holds an MA in Religious Journalism from the Ukrainian Catholic University and an MA in Journalism from the Ivan Franko Lviv National University. Partly due to her own religion, family history and the current situation in Ukraine made religious journalism her calling.
