I’m Polish, I come from Gdańsk – however, I have lived abroad for over 17 years now. Because of that, I have been intensely involved in working with and for the Polish diaspora.
My efforts have been recognised with the Outstanding Pole in England, Wales and Northern Ireland prize (Wybitny Polak w Anglii, Walii i Irlandii Północnej), in the Science category, awarded by Teraz Polska and organised by the Polish City Club and PANGEA Magazine. I have also been awarded the Honorary Prize from Dziennik Polski – “Człowiek roku”.
Some of my current activities include:
- Working as part of the Science: Polish Perspectives team – organising a science communication. conference for researchers of Polish origin
- Serving as a Principal Ambassador for Oxford University at The Kings Foundation.
- Assisting with the Bloody Foreigners campaign.
In the past, I have
- Been engaged in the work of the School for Leaders Association, as part of the School for Leaders of Polish communities Abroad Programme – first as a participant, then as a programme assistant.
- Co-founded the Federation of Polish Student Societies in the UK – I am currently its Board member.
- Run the Oxford University Polish Society (as a president, then a PR officer).
