My name is Karolina and I’m a recent graduate from the University of British Columbia. … I had always thought my Polish background was reserved for the home, never thinking I could find a little piece of it on UBC’s campus. Because it was my final year I was unfortunately unable to continue on to Polish 300 but the CENES department will always hold a place in my heart. It left me with a strong yearning to revisit Poland with a new perspective.
