I like calling myself a ‘creative soul’, but maybe it’s just a nice name for having 64392743 hobbies and not being able to choose just one to take care of 😀 In my free time I sew and do all the DIY projects that come to my mind. I like experimenting with my look, however two of my trademarks always stay the same: colorful hair and black & white clothes 🖤
In LEVEL UP I’m trying to use my creativity by being a part of the social media and newsletter teams. I enjoy talking about topics related to mental health the most, but I welcome (almost) every challenge with open arms!
At the moment I would describe myself as a full-time traveler, trying a bit of everything. I am currently staying in my second favorite city in Europe at the moment - Vienna. I am passionate about German language and sports. Especially in sailing, which I am an instructor in the summer season. I also boost my skill in surfing so that I can also teach it. In the next six months, I'm planning to run a marathon, so now I'm also focusing on running. As you can see, sport is my passion 🙂 But getting to know new people and being inspired by them delights me just as much as sports. That's how I got into Erasmus+ projects and ended up at LEVEL UP in the project management masters team.
This is the girl who is never at home because she travels all the time. When she’s asked where she would like to live after she finishes her studies, her answer is: everywhere. She loves discovering new cultures and gaining new experience. After one youth exchange, her world turned upside down and she is so addicted to it that she doesn't even try to stop it. When he hears the word "exhange", he behaves the same way as a dog hearing about a walk. If we give her a project involving almost half of Europe, she will be as happy as a child with a balloon. If she goes for a walk, she will run half a marathon, which is why only the persistent suggest going out with her. And if she has to plan a trip, she chooses the longest one with as many stops as possible in order to gain as much experience as possible. When she was returning from the exchange, she flew all over Europe to show her beloved London in only 30 minutes and take a picture under this large clock. It is like sunshine that spreads good energy. She likes to tap on the computer sometimes, which is why she works in the graphic team at LEVEL UP.
Animal lover, especially dog lover. Before, I had no idea that exploring the world was so fantastic and interesting. Thanks to LEVEL UP I discovered my new vocation, my dream, which is traveling. In the association, I work mainly on tiktok, but also in the development team.
I am an IT student and I work at LEVEL UP in the Web masters team, so I create the association's website and try to improve it together with other members.
I am glad that I joined the association, because I have met many amazing people, and I’ve also gained valuable skills and development opportunities through volunteering. I agree with the words of Pino Pellegrino: "True wealth is not what your work will earn you, but what it will make you."
Privately, I am interested in traveling and learning foreign languages. My hobbies are dietetics and all sports, especially strength training and roller skating.
I am a student of Administration of Education and Non-Governmental Organizations. I would like to gain professional experience and develop my skills in the third sector, because I dream of a job where I could at least indirectly help someone.
At LEVEL UP, I deal mainly with creating social media messages, and recently also managing our LinkedIn account,
I joined the association a few months ago because I wanted to gain real experience in a team related to marketing and PR.
I am very happy that I decided to start this cooperation, because from that moment I believed more in my competences and received a solid dose of knowledge, thanks to with trainings.
In addition, I am passionate about the language and culture of Italy, as well as sports (especially volleyball and tennis).
I joined LEVEL UP in November 2021 and manage the website. During this period I gained a lot of valuable knowledge, experience and met super people!
Currently, I am in the high school graduating class on the profile of mathematics and computer science, and I associate my future with computer science.
In my free time I read books, develop my scientific interests, cook, meet with friends and go to sports and walk with my dog. I also love to travel and learn about new cultures, places and people!
I think it's important to live according to your own principles, be open to new ideas and views and try to make our world a better place.
For as long as I can remember I have been preoccupied in some way with social issues.
Especially during my studies, my first serious job was just project coordination in an NGO. Later a little action in factchecking and permanently a professional job in Internet marketing as a marketing systems specialist and web analyst.
Today I run my own business, but I still contribute to various initiatives smaller and larger 🙂 That's why I'm with LEVELUP, where I sometimes help with marketing and digitalization issues.
If you have any ideas, let me know. Maybe we can do it together.
I believe that life is about continuous learning (in different ways). The mind is our most valuable asset that is worth investing in.
I decided to work with LEVEL UP in order to gather new experiences, test myself in a new role and step outside my comfort zone.
I'm a big fan of horror movies - mainly because, under the guise of controversy, they raise important social and psychological issues.
After graduation, I plan to travel to different parts of the world, with the goal of eventually living on one of the tropical islands and splashing in the ocean every day. 🙂
My name is Kinga and I am 17 years old. I have been active in Level Up for a year now, and I joined the organization after a youth exchange in Lithuania. I am a person constantly searching and discovering myself, I am interested in psychology and like to philosophize. I derive joy from traveling and meeting new people, which is why I am in love with international exchanges, after which I always come back as a newborn, inspired person <3 I like music, it accompanies me every moment of my day, and my taste in music varies from indie rock and pop to hip hop and rap-although I still listen to everything that comes to my ears. I am of the opinion that everything should be tried at least once in life, so I try to grab every opportunity for adventure or development. I love animals 😀
To live it is to be a lifelong student. This is, in a way, my motto. I love collecting new experiences, learning about other cultures and languages, and helping others discover the same curiosity about the world that I have. I have a degree in Japanology and Literary&Cultural Comparative Studies. In my free time, I enjoy journaling, board games, a trip to a film festival, an evening with tea and a good book, a concert or a walk in nature. At LEVEL UP, among other things, I manage the Twitter account.
I'm a marketing and PR graduate, and I'm a lover of Japanese literature (as in all other literature). I love taking solitary walks with music, because I can get inspiration from it.
I've been active at LEVEL UP for a year now - I help run social media by creating interesting and engaging content, and some time ago I also wrote for the blog. I'm glad I joined this initiative - I can receive invaluable professional experience, working in a close-knit and friendly team.
I am the kind of a person who likes to smile at fate. I am bursting with energy for martial arts training, baking cakes and long walks. I am still looking for my place in this fast-paced world, but one of those places I already found in LEVEL UP, where I create graphics and can continue to develop.
I am Jowita and I love to act! I believe that in life we have a choice: either we build and create the life we want, or we settle for what we get from fate. I want to grow, add to my knowledge, life experience and build my world view. That is why I joined LEVEL UP!
In addition to the association, I am also active in many youth organizations. In my free time I learn foreign languages and travel.
I love being involved in various volunteer foundations and community service. The LEVEL UP Association has made me very interested in its program, and although I have not been on the team long, I definitely want to stay longer. In my free time I study languages, spend time with friends and read books. Occasionally I play the guitar or ukulele. I love traveling and I take advantage of every opportunity for development. My greatest pleasure is hiking in the mountains and taking long walks. I enjoy helping others.
I have been active in LEVEL UP since March. It started with a student internship that I had to complete in college, but right after it was over I decided that I want to keep going 😉 I am mainly involved in project management and helping the organization with projects. What I like most about the association is that by acting in this way we can make a real impact on the local and even international environment, and after all, every action, even the smallest one, has a meaning, and this is what I also follow. I recently finished my studies in applied linguistics English with Italian, because languages are a huge passion for me, I really enjoy learning them and along with that getting to know new cultures and customs. So far I am most fascinated with Italy, I spent a semester there on an Erasmus ❤️🇮🇹. I love to travel and try to do it whenever I have the opportunity. I am interested in photography and music (I spent 12 years of my life in music school) and I also try to read a lot of books.
I love to be where a lot is going on, especially if I am surrounded by interesting people. That's why the activities at LEVEL UP are so much fun for me. I enjoy conducting trainings, most of all in soft skills, where I use the knowledge I gained from studying psychology. I love to travel, discover the world and enjoy nature. I relax by spending time with friends over coffee, reading or watching movies or series.
One of my life priorities is self-development. LEVEL UP opened to me a lot of opportunities for self-realization and general development as a personality.
At this moment I am one of the Team Leaders in the Project Management department. I'm really happy that all I do has a positive impact on the community as well as on myself. I enjoy interacting with young people and in the future, I would like to be involved in youth work as my profession.
I love traveling, getting to know new people, their cultures, and just to learn about our wonderful world.
One of my hobbies is studying languages. I believe that sometimes from language grammar you can learn more about the history and culture of nations, than from boring history books.
What I value most in people is responsibility, originality and commitment, that's why our LEVEL UP team is the most productive environment for me, which is charging me with positive energy every day!
I have been socially involved since I was a child, I am an eternal volunteer and I take part in many festivals. I like challenges, which is why I have already tried my hand as a journalist, pilot of foreign groups, store manager, teacher, project and workshop coordinator, and even on the radio and television.
At LEVEL UP, I found a place for myself where I can combine many of my interests and continue to develop, look for new challenges and do what excites and makes me happy.
There is no place for boredom in my life, I try new things all the time, but I also have some fixed points like traveling, boxing, everything that is Spanish or Latin and my dear friends.
My biggest dream is to start my own festival related to music and international culture. Getting to know people from all over the world is very eye and mind opening, I wish everyone could experience it 🙂
I have been with LEVEL UP since the very beginning, now I am mainly involved in the e-volunteer program and internal training, as well as project development. I have always wanted to help others, and this is my main motivation to act. That is why, being a fan of medical series, I received a proper education and became a doctor. However, it is never too late to change my career and I am now professionally involved with NGOs.
I want to share my knowledge and experience with others in order to improve their lives and give them chances as I was given in the past. Since becoming a mom, I've been even more passionate about changing the world, getting closer to women, and improving environmental education and awareness.
I love going for a walk, crime (books, movies and my latest passion is the True Crime podcast), sushi and travel. Concerts have a special place in my house, especially music festivals, and I don't start my day without coffee ☕
I am strongly motivated and always puts 100% of herself into every task that she is undertaking. I love to learn new things and meet people and try my best to be calm and optimistic in every situation 🙂
I graduated in Computer Science at the Kielce University of Technology and now I study Human Resources Management at Jagiellonian University. I am passionate about animals (especially dogs, rats and horses), travelling and NGOs. In my free time I read books, spend time in nature and volunteer. I associate my future with HR, training conducting and project management.
I joined the Level Up team because I used to work in NGOs for the last 6 years (as a volunteer and as a full time employee) and it's an important part of my life. Now, I want to contribute to the organization and develop myself as a project coordinator and a trainer.
The good of other people has always been important to me. I love helping others knowing that I can influence in a positive way the life of another person :)|
On a daily basis I have a full-time job, but at night I practice latino and learn Spanish.
I joined Level Up because I cannot sit still. Despite (so far) my short stay in foundation, I can see that there are people full of energy, who, just like me, want to constantly develop and get to know others.
I am a student of Biotechnology at the Faculty of Biology and Environmental Protection at the University of Lodz. One of the places where I feel best is Lodz. Here I work, have friends and I cannot sit still. I love when something is happening around me, and at the same time I have a group of people who want to develop with me. That is why I joined LEVEL UP with such hope! Honestly, I was not disappointed! In the world of this association, I am an Instagram Coordinator and I have the best team that I wouldn’t replace! <3
A volunteer, student, citizen of Lodz, enthusiast of running and mountain hiking - in any order 🙂 In LEVEL UP I dealt with various activities, and now I am trying my hand at coordinating projects. In my spare time I am catching up on books, and recently also experimenting with vegan recipes. I am looking for my way of life, trying to change a small piece of it around me for the better. I believe that there is nothing more beautiful than being able to make another person smile 😊
Self-development and living in harmony with my own values are important to me. By setting new challenges for myself, I overcome my own barriers. In my free time, I create natural cosmetics and dance to Latino rhythms. I love traveling and meeting interesting people, I am no stranger to hitchhiking or couchsurfing. In LEVEL UP, I am responsible for people and new initiatives.
