💜 MEET HELENA BIGANOVSKY 💜
Helena is 102 years of age and was born and grew up in the Ukraine.
Young Helena started her first job working as a chauffeur driver, escorting individuals to meetings. She not only drove the cars but was very good at keeping up with the maintenance (very much a man’s role back in those days) and knew how to service and change the tyres on all the cars.
When Helena moved to Adelaide she worked at Holden, sewing the car seats for the new cars. She enjoyed working there and would ride her bike to work every day. Helena eventually left Holden to be closer to her home and worked for a company called ICI (Impartial Chemical Industries) working in the canteen. Her duties where mainly kitchenhand/waitress, and she enjoyed it very much. She was a hard-working lady and liked keeping busy. She retired at the age of 60. When asking Helena what’s the trick to reaching 100 years old, she will reply “keeping fit, being active and never giving up.”
An amazing lady, she is an inspiration to us all! Do you know an amazing and passionate woman who has been unafraid to #breakthebias
