About Me


explore the wonders of the world.


Currently, I am on my way to Lesvos, Greece to help with the refugees. I lived in Barcelona for a PhD program. I lived in Torino, Italy for one year teaching English, and Chicago is home. I love to live in different countries! I could speak English,Polish, and Spanish fluently and hopefully, pick up some Greek. I am outgoing and I love to socialize with others to learn new ideas and culture. I am a student to life, always willing to learn from the experiences I encounter.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

There are SO many, but if I have to choose the one that has influenced my life to an extreme. It would have to be giving aid to displaced refugees coming over from Turkey to Greece in search of peace.

Also, meeting amazing people along the way :)

Teach, Learn, Share

Even the smallest things are life lessons, so you cannot specify exactly what you or others can get out of the experience of crossing paths.

For example, receiving a message from one of my students,
"Thank you for inspiring me to see the world!" with a picture of her by the Colosseum in Rome.
You never know who is listening and what influence you have on their lives...the beauty of life :)
