My Work
As a movement communications specialist I work with communities and affiliates in Europe, building bridges and relations and supporting collaboration in the region. I am also coordinating celebrating the pillars of our movement, the Wikimedians of exceptional contributions through WikiCelebrate.
About Me
I am a project organizer, a communicator, a passionate and curious reader, and (hopefully) a psychologist-to-be. But most of all – I am a Wikimedian. I have been a part of the Movement for more than a decade – as a volunteer (you can find my volunteer account here), as a Wikimedia Polska staff member and, now, from 2022, as a part of the Wikimedia Foundation.

I am located in Poznań, Poland. My favorite movie is Perfect Days, my favorite book is Neverending Story. I have a long list of things that make me happy, including: adding an article to Wikipedia, taking a long walk, meeting people (especially Wikimedians), and traveling. I laugh a lot, make friends quickly and try to put kindness and empathy in everything I do.

I start every day with a cup of coffee and end it with one of my two cats on my lap.
I work for or provide services to the Wikimedia Foundation, and this is the account I try to use for edits or statements I make in that role. However, the Foundation does not vet all my activity, and edits, statements, or other contributions made by this account may not reflect the views of the Foundation.
