Polish participants

My name is Ada. I live in Wrocław with my parents, brother and dog (I love all animals). I`m vegetarian for 14 years-  in my opinion a vegetarian diet is colorful and creative.

I love travelling, for me exploring new places is really exiting, my favorite place where I had  opportunity to be is Acapulco and Mallorca. I`m sporty person too, I like playing basketball and handball, riding a horse,  running, dancing, sailing – that wind when you swimming by the lake and your hair is dispelled but my favorite is paintball – extreme things are my favorite. Unfortunately, I had a long break from sport because I had problem with my legs but now I go to the gym with my friends and I really like it.

I`m a chef and confectioner at my home, I love cooking and baking (and apparently this is good) and of course eating too. I really like meeting new people and having fun, especially concerts, I love them! I listen to all type of music and I like discovering new songs.  I think I am curious and open for getting to know new people.


I’m Ola Chwalinska and I’m 16. I live in a small village next to Wroclaw with my family – parents and younger brother. I also have an older sister but she doesn’t live with us.

What about me? I’m totally mad about music – I love rock and metal! I like spending time with my friends and dog too. He’s quite big (that’s golden retriever) so I hope you like pets and it won’t be any problem for you.
I’m interested in photography as well – in my free time I usually meet with my best friend and we take lots of photos.

Oh, I haven’t written before I’m diabetic – since 2004. But for me that’s not a problem – I just don’t remember what was before my disease so that’s very natural.  I’m vegetarian (but I’m not studying a law – yeah, I have very bad sense of humour) but the rest of my family eats meat.

About my family… What can I write? My parent’s don’t speak English but they’re really lovely and understanding. My younger brother is a football player and during your visit in Poland he is going to take part in a big tournament in Spain.

My older sister may visit us during your visit – but don’t worry, she’s nice.

I’m delighted you’re coming!

Aleksandra_SzczebaraHi, my name is Aleksandra Szczębara, but friends call me Ola. I’m 17 years old and I live in Wrocław in south-east of Poland.

I live in a suburb in detached house with my family: my mum Maria, who works in small corporation, my dad Marek, who is IT specialist and my younger brother Kuba, who is 15 years old.

I have started second year in high school. I’m in class with extra biology, chemistry and maths, so maybe one day I become a doctor or some kind of scientist. I also really like painting and drawing, so I was thinking about become an architecture too. In the afternoon I go to music school. I play the piano and sing in the choir. In free time I ride a horse. I love it, but I don’t have enough time to practice it every day. I’m also a volunteer in National Forum of Music.

I like reading books, listening to music (one of my favorites artists are Imagines Dragons, Ed Sheeran, Lorde and Lana Del Rey), meet new people and explore new places. That’s one of the reasons why I want to take part in this project. I’m really fascinated by the North countries and I would like to get to know them closer.

I’m addicted to music (really). I’ve been playing the piano for about 12 years. I can’t imagine a day without something which is connected with music – listening, playing the piano, making new compositions. I listen to everything that “has something special” for me but my favourite band is Radiohead. I love jazz and Katie Melua too.  My hobby is also playing in the theater. Roleplay makes me feel like I’m in the different world.

I’m very grateful to my parents that they do everything to make my dreams come true.  One of my biggest dreams is to visit a lot of incredible places all over the world.  Never say never and I know that everything is possible, we must only believe in ourselves.

What do I want to do in the future?

Hm… I still don’t know. However I’m sure I will be a writer one day so maybe it is my fate.

What am I doing during my free time?

I usually go to the library or somewhere where nobody can find me. Then I read and write stories. Of course I also study a lot, mainly biology, history and chemistry.

Something about me:

I live with my parents, brother (16) and sister (5) 40 km from Wrocław, in Strzelin.

My favourite color is dark red.

In my opinion the best series ever is My little pony. Interesting is that in the past I used to hate it.

I love polish writers like Ziemiański, Gołębiewski, Fabicka and the others. From other countries I like C. Clare, T. Canavan, M. Young, J. Green… it is too long to write it now. I am also a big fan of Pandora Hearts, Tokyo Ghoul and other mangas.

marysia_SzczygielHi, my name is Marysia Szczygieł and I’m 16 years old. I go to high school nr VII and I’m on the first year. My profile includes extended mathematics, biology and chemistry with additional language – Latin. I very fond of these subject and I’m thinking about studying medicine in the future. Learning languages also gives me a lot of pleasure, especially English. I also learn German and I’ve started learning Latin this year. I’d love to learn one another language – Spanish or Italian – because I am in love with these countries.

I have a younger sister. She’s name is Zosia and she’s 11. Our family lives in a nice terraced house with a small garden, which my mom loves to care for. She’s a chemistry teacher by trade, but she also fancies most things that are connected with art. Actually is share this interest with her. My father is a doctor, but he works in a company testing some new medicines. He has similar likings to me. I think that we are a caring and cheerful family.

My main hobbies are drawing, reading books, listening to music, travelling, sport and fashion. I also enjoy spending free time with my closest friends and I love walking long hours without an aim for example in a park or the Market Square. I usually draw just with a pencil, I love sketching people, sometimes nature. I also design the interiors and clothes from time to time. The truth is that my drawings are really precious to me and I rarely show them to others, because it’s so private to me, but everything depends on what I’m drawing at the given moment.

My favourite kinds of books are criminals, fantasy and detective books. I listen to many different types of music and I’m pretty open to get know more great singers. My favourite band are: Arctic Monkeys, U2, The Beatles, Queen, Guns’n’Roses and some of the Polish ones. I love travelling, no matter where, I’d just love to see as much world as I can during my life, get to know and experience other cultures and climates. It makes us wiser and more understanding. I’ve been to Spain, Greece, Turkey, German, The Czech Republic and Great Britain and I can’t wait to visit you in Iceland. Amidst sports I appreciate the most playing basketball, jogging, swimming and exercising (gym). I also planning to enrol for a dancing course. And at the end – fashion. I’m very keen on shopping and scrolling through fashion blogs/pages/online shops. Planning what to wear and matching my clothes to create the best looking outfits gives me a lot of fun, but it’s not like I’m doing it all the way and am kind of a maniac. I just enjoy doing all these activities, especially just looking at the clothes or trying them on and not buying it 😉

At the beginning I can be quite shy and not so talkative, but as you get to know me better I’ll become more open and fun-loving girl. I can do anything as long as the atmosphere and company is good. I’m happy to meet and hang out with all of you 🙂
