Who is Sylwia?
I am a girl who 6 years ago decided to change her life 180 degrees and find her place in Portugal. I studied Polish Literature at the University of Warsaw, but I quickly discovered that a teaching career is not for me. I could say my life has changed because of two things – sign language and European projects. One led to the other.
I am trying to discover new things all the time, take up challenges that at the beginning seem impossible but I guess I am too stubborn to quit.
In my ideal world, I would read one book a day while baking and thinking about the next place I would like to visit.
What motivates you?
Moments when I have to give 100% of myself.
Because it was a challenge I couldn’t resist. Also after a few years’ break, I started to miss the project-related environment with its creative approach spreading knowledge. Contextos is the perfect place to develop my passions and create something valuable.
What is your part of the team?
I am a Project Coordinator responsible for the development and implementation of Contextos programs, planning and scheduling tasks, managing group communication, budget and risk. In addition to coordinating already existing projects, I have space to create my own projects and bring new ideas to life.
What is your superpower?
My superpower are the fantastic people I surround myself with. They give me the courage to implement my crazy plans and encourage me to take on new challenges.
