Polish people have been so incredibly kind and welcoming. Once you get to know them and their culture, it is all very complex, and very genuine. My interactions with people over here have been some of the most rewarding adult interactions of my life.

My expectations have changed since coming to Poland, particularly with some of the cultural interactions. Before, I had this understanding that Polish people were more reserved and to an extent that is sometimes true. But I've also sensed this incredible warmth and open hospitality that has really made me feel like Poland is home.

During my Fulbright grant, I've learned how to do public speaking a lot better. From teaching, I learned a lot about just getting up there and doing it. And now having done something that I didn't study I think I've learned that if I just try it, I can make anything work.

One big reason to come to Poland is that it is a really fascinating country historically and culturally. I’m from theater so that’s excellent for me. It's also incredibly affordable and you can live comfortably here in a way that I'd say it's probably the most European country for the best bank for your pockets

During my Fulbright grant, I learned two things: I learned to be flexible and I also learned to stand up for myself. You know, when you need something, it is kind of your responsibility to go up to someone and let them know that there’s something that needs to be done.

Poland should be on your list. It's a beautiful place with so much history and the people and the food are just wonderful. Everybody is willing to come out of their way to help you as long as you're willing to go out there and ask. So, you really have to put yourself out there but it's one of those opportunities to really learn how to do that.
