About Me

CURRENT MISSION

ABOUT ME

My friends say I'm adorable :-) i love meeting new people and Im excited to see new placesWhen I travel I try to explore the real life I can touch and smell, therefore I never go on travel agency organised trips.In Warsaw I was a leader of the Polish Senior Fellows Network within transatlantic organization - Humanity in Action (human rights issues)I also worked in History Meeting House as interviewer(conducting interviews with history witnesses and recently within the new project with foreigners who lived in Poland during the communism era. I enjoyed my Erasmus experience in Tuebingen, Germany as well as my internship time in Brussels, Belgium.
Currently I am a teacher at international secondary school n Chiang Mai, Thailand. Moved here 2 years ago and open to make new friends.
