Sylwia was born in Toruń, Poland but has lived in the States since 1995, and for the past 17 years, she’s been an Orlando resident. As an undergraduate student at the Foreign Language Teacher Training College in Poland, she started teaching Polish to Peace Corps volunteers.
For her graduate degree in English she moved to the States. She’s been teaching English and Polish for over 20 years.
She’s passionate about supporting bilingualism and maintaining the Polish language and culture. She’s a recipient of poetry and translation contests awards. Loves gardening and mushroom picking; needless to say, she can’t do the latter unless she’s in Poland.
