I am Polish/British. I began my education in Poland where I was born, before moving to Wales to start University. In 2020 I graduated with an LLB in Law from Swansea University. In 2011, I undertook a Legal Practice Course at the University of Law in Bristol majoring in Commercial and Corporate Law. I also hold a degree in Human Resources with Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development.
As an immigrant and someone with dyslexia it was my experiences of Higher Education in the UK where I began to truly appreciate the diversity of individuals and the importance and necessity of inclusive practice. I myself benefited from initiatives designed to enhance my experience as a foreign student and someone requiring reasonable adjustments due to my disability.
From the start of my professional career in human resources I worked with graduates, and for the past 6 years I have been mentoring students. I love seeing how mentoring relationship can bolster their self-esteem, improve social skills and provide career progression.
In my day to day job, I am continuously exploring opportunities on how corporate organisations can increase visibility of issues of inclusion and diversity, leading to positive change.
I have been leading the Courageous Conversations initiative aimed at promoting awareness and increasing understanding of what inclusion and diversity means.
