Thanks for taking the time to read my profile :)
Growing up in Australia, my family was a huge supporter of homestay programs, over 21 years worth, and as a result, I felt I had already started to travel the world meeting all these different people from so many different cultures. I was introduced from a very young age until my early 20's, students from countries such as; Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Pakistan, India, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Brazil, Peru, Mexico, Germany, Poland, Russia, France and Sweden.
Growing up with this type of childhood allowed me to develop unique skills, not only to tailor my communication to culturally appropriate topics, ideas and terms, but also it has given me an unparalleled ability to relate and communicate with people from all different "walks of life" and cultures.
I was most definitely born in Australia but both my parents are from Poland and growing up with them and my grandparents has ingrained my love of Poland and Polish culture to the point that I have now relocated and live in Krakow.
A brief description of my work and study experience:
I am TEFL certified, Bachelor of IT & Multimedia and have spent the last 12 years running and owning my own businesses in the IT & Telecommunications area in both retail, SME as well as enterprise and government. I have also had cafes and multimedia / photography based companies. I would say that my Polish and French are of a B2 level and slowly increasing.
This history coupled with my passion to better peoples' lives and make as many people smile and laugh, is what makes my approach and expeirence a "one of kind" learning experience..
