Co-curricular

I started my experience with extracurricular activities at Lake Forest College by running for Student Government. I was one of the International Student Senator for Class of 2024 in Fall 2020, now I am one of the Residential Student Senators. I am a Founder and Vice President of the Slavic Ancestry Organization. I used to be the Programming Chair of It's On Us and recently got elected President. I am a Title IX Volunteer. I am a member of Women in STEM, League for Environmental Awareness and Protection (LEAP), To Write Love On Her Arms, First Aid Organisation, Student Programming Board, and Club Council. I am a Student Worker at the Gates Center for Leadership and Personal Growth, Student Manager at Mail Service, and a Peer Note Taker at the Center for Academic Success. I am a First Connection Mentor and have been nominated to serve on the Conduct and Academic Honesty Judicial Boards. Because of my engagement and leadership on campus, as well as academic performance, I am a recipient of a Foster G. McGaw Scholarship. In May 2021, my fellow students at Lake Forest College elected me Student Government Vice-President for the 2021-22 academic year.

My Dream Job

Even though I remain undecided on my future academic pathway, one of the jobs I am interested in is working at the Polish Ministry of Education. I aspire to restructure the Polish educational system to make it less theoretical and promote the importance of non-academic education, including social and psychological self-development. I want to conduct research and participate in the policy-making process.
