Personal Summary

An LLB Law and MSc in Culture and Society graduate, with a drive to share stories and work in a media industry. I can write a well-researched press release within an hour, build a professional relationship through a single Zoom call and master any deadline. A broad reader who likes to stay up to date, I have a good awareness of the pressing issues and political landscape in Poland and UK. Thanks to a track record of leading projects (and running a small business) in the UK, Poland and UAE, I work well with people from a diverse range of backgrounds, and thrive in a fast-paced environment.
