I’ve been kayaking since I remember, my Mom and family took me into touristic kayaking when I was very young . I started in a touristic club called Krakowski Klub Kajakowy in Melchiora Wankowicza.


I kept paddling there till February 2007 when my cousins went to “Bystrze” – Academic club at AGH university and met Piotr Sikora from Retendo who was looking for juniors for Freestyle Kayaking. They asked me if I would like to give it a try and I got immediately interested and I got completely addicted!


Since then I’m spending every possible moment training or looking for playspots. At the beginning of 2009 I changed club to Krakowski Klub kajakowy which helps me with my training and travels. I have graduated as a Master from Academy of Physical Education extending my experience and passion acquiring coaching abilities.


Following that (and being kind of a nerd!) I did another Master in Sport Management at Jagiellonian University, Took a part EMTM in Girona and finally became a PhD student back at Jagiellonian University.


However, my life is about kayaking. It is not only a sport, it’s way of living for me. It has made me who I am – taught me the value of a smile, connection to nature, let me meet so many amazing friends all around the world in places I wouldn’t ever be able to visit otherwise. 


Thank you to everybody who shared that passion with me, now I hope to share it with others! Teaching is simply my passion. I love sharing knowledge and bringing more out of people while seeing how they fall in love with the sport that has changed my life!



Favorite Place to Paddle:

White Nile (Uganda), Salza (Austria) and well, anything that flows and I can share time with friends on the water!


Something crazy about me… 

I love cookies and cows!
