Magda Przedmojska (1984)

About me
I graduated from the University of Warsaw with a degree in Applied Linguistics (MA) and Text Edition (post-diploma). Currently I work for the Polish-German Cooperation Fund on a project called Polish-German Media Days and I am happy to say I like my tasks at work very much – what a great feeling if you compare it to my previous work. I also do German-Polish translation and text edition, from time to time for example for the Helsinki Foundation for Human Rights, before that for Amnesty International, and a little bit of teaching.

I lived in Scotland (Aberdeenshire, Perthshire, Isle of Skye), studied and worked there, I lived in Berlin, where I also worked. I am still emotionally related to these places. I am a split soul missing the Scottish nostalgia and the German city vibe. But to me Warsaw is still the place to be because of my friends and family – the most important people in my life.

I spend my free time mostly reading books, meeting friends and travelling around Warsaw/Poland/Europe. I take photos of the places I visit to keep good memories. I cook a lot and consider myself not a bad cook. I play squash regularly and go skiing and snowboarding once a year.

Why do I love my city?
Warsaw is a very interesting place where new and old things come together. You will find relics of the communist system next to new housing estates or shopping malls and classical buildings, which makes a city quite a nice melting point to visit.

Recently I have also moved from one side of the river to the other to get to know the rest of my city so… expect more from the other side :)!
