  • Descripción

    My goals are: traveling the world, gaining knowledge and experience, helping and bringing joy to all creatures that live on our beautiful planet and enjoying life as much as possible.

    I started organising my journeys by myself when I turned18 years old. After high school I decided to take a gap year as an Aupair in USA so I changed my life completely for a year. I visited 18 states there + I was in Toronto and Niagara Falls in Canada. But what's most important I lived with host family and took care of 5 children. It was big challange but I loved it. Also I was a voluteer in an international humanitarian aid and disaster relief organization - Matthew 25 Ministries. I sorted food, clothes and other basic products and I prepared packages that were sent to people in need.

    In August 2019, I lived my big dream and traveled for an entire month with my best friend around Europe. We started in Katowice, Poland and finished in Porto, Portugal. We traveled without any savings just earning money by singing on the street, we hitchhiked and couchsurfed and this way in one month we traveled more than 3000 km. So far the biggest adventure of my life. I could connect my love for music, traveling and meeting new people. I loved it.

    Currently, I am a student in Cracow, Poland. I study International Relations at Jagiellonian University.
    Last year in 2020, I was an Erasmus student in Zagreb, Croatia. It was awesome. However, during my pretty short stay coronavirus started and there was an earthquake so unfortunately I had no other choice then to come back home.

    I am very optimistic and open-minded. I love meeting new people. I am this kind of person that is interested in everything so I really enjoy listening to other people stories! Sharing experiences and points of view with other people can teach you so much!

    Obviously I love traveling, but this kind that you really get to know the place where you go to through the eyes of the people who live there. In general I am extrovert, most of the time I really like being surrounded by people.
    I believe we can understand culture of particular country the best if we spend time with local people. And I think that understanding each other nowadays is so important, if people would only listen more to one another, world would be so much better and more peaceful place!

  • Que habilidades tienes?

    - I have a driving license for 4 years. I drive a lot and I think I am pretty experienced driver because I drove not only in Poland but also in USA, where I also passed driving license test and I drove a lot.

    - I completed my internship in Amnesty International in Poland. I was responsible for translating documents and doing research. I also analyzed jurisprudence of Polish courts. I prepared written materials and graphics to be used at campaigns conducted by AI. It was very valuable experience and it gave me an insight into the way of working in organizations.

    - I have developed organizational skills: For a year I was a member of students association in Cracow (All In UJ), pillar: Culture, All In UJ on Tour. I organized travel events, for example City-State Quiz, with more than one hundred participants and two Travel Speed Meetings. I hosted a City-State Quiz. Also I ran All In UJ on Tour Facebook fanpage and designed and created posts, events graphics, etc.

    - I also have experience in projects connected with helping and educating people. With small group of other students we made a project „No Barriers - Homelessness”. Project was completed by an event organized in cooperation with Social Work Student Research Club, UPJPII and „Our Home” Foundation. I recorded and edited short video about homelessness and inclusion. We worked in cooperation with „Our Home” Foundation and fund-raised money for it during an event. I ran event’s Facebook website, created posts and events graphics. Also with my friends I interviewed researchers of homelessness issue during a project completing event.

    - I am experienced in volunteering: I was a volunteer in orphanage and kindergarten. Also I volunteered in international humanitarian aid and relief organization - Matthew 25 Ministries. I sorted food, clothes and other basic products and I prepared packages that were sent to people in need.

    - Language teaching: I am experienced in teaching English. I studied this language for many years and I lived in USA for a year when I was an Aupair. In high school I was a volunteer in an orphanage where I helped children to learn this language. Also I am an English tutor for 3 years. I mostly teach children in primary school (in Poland you are a primary school student until you're 14 years old), but I have experience in teaching high school students too.

    - Childcare: I am also experienced in childcare. In high school I volunteered in kindergarten. I helped to take care of children (age: 3-6 years old), I organized their time, various games and I helped with eating and hygiene. Also I was an Aupair in USA for a year. It's a cultural exchange program. I lived with a host family and I took care of 5 children (age: 10-17 years old), 45 hours a week. I developed organizational skills, responsibility, independence in solving problems and ability of coping with stressful situations. I communicated only in English and I improved my driving skills a lot because I drove a lot.

    - I also worked as an ice-cream seller in a zoo for 2 months and I was a waitress (unfortunately not for long because it was just before the covid started and all restaurants in Poland were closed).

    - I study International Relations so I know a lot about history, politics.

    - I sing pretty well, I play ukulele (basics, but I enjoy it a lot). I used to attend to music school, I played accordion and piano. It was years ago but my love for music stayed with me.

    - I can cook and bake, normal level I would say, it's not difficult with good recipe. I am no Masterchef but I enjoy it and meals I cook are edible ;)

    As you can see I worked and volunteered in many different places. I like learning and gaining experience because I believe every skill can be useful. I love people and animals. I have good communication skills, I smile a lot and I easily make new friends. I learn very fast and I like challenges a lot. I consider myself as a flexible person who easily adapt to new conditions. I put my heart and soul into everything I do, because I believe that if one does their best and gives love to others, it makes the world better place.

    I am experienced in teaching English. In high school I was a volunteer in an orphanage where I helped children with learning this language. Also I am an English tutor for 3 years. I mostly teach children in primary school (in Poland you are a primary school student until you're 14 years old), but I have experience in teaching high school students too. I am fluent in English, I studied this language for many years and I lived in USA for a year when I was an Aupair. I am also fluent in Polish because that's my native language, so I can teach this language too. I am interested in learning a language too. I am currently attending a Spanish course for beginners, so if you speak Spanish and you can teach me something I would be more than grateful.
