Why would you want to work together?

The concept of security is changing as the world is forced to adapt to a new wave of threats revolving around climate, health, and human (in)security. Studying and working in the field of international affairs for more than 5 years, my interests have extended from traditional geopolitics and security to climate diplomacy and foreign policy based on human rights approach, justice. My work and professional engagements are driven by three reasons: 

My diverse educational and professional backgrounds allow me to adopt fast to new projects and organisations and become       operational from day one. I am resilient, adaptable, flexible, and thus remain open to new opportunities and challenges.  

I thrive in dynamic and fast-paced international environment especially if I share values and objectives of those I work with. I am solutions-oriented and work on translating ideas and thoughts into concrete actions.

Being an energetic, committed, and passionate professional, I possess a diverse pool of skills 

  • academic and policy research and analysis ​

  • building strong cooperation with various stakeholders

  • organisational skills

Thanks to good teamwork and my willingness to go an extra mile, I have often been able to combine studies, work, and volunteering engagements. It is precisely this ability to juggle multiple commitments that has sharpened my organisational skills and formed me as an amicable, innovative, and resilient professional who delivers high-quality results on time.

I am an alumna of the EU International Relations and Diplomacy Studies programme at the College of Europe, as well as MSc in Conflict and Development at the Ghent University.

My language skills include fluent English, Polish, Russian, Ukrainian, as well as a working level of French
