About Me

I believe in dreaming big and working hard: bright eyes, brave hearts and a touch of perfectionism drive the world.

As somebody who at the age of 19 launched and headed an educational non-profit organisation which now gathers over 100 students, I'm convinced that limits exist only in our heads. We, humans, are invincible. Over the last two years, I have been travelling the world (I've lived in 4 countries) and passionately advocating for causes close to my heart as part of global non-profit organisations. Things change with the speed of the light, but my passion for writing has stood the test of time. 

Writing has been my passion since early childhood. I published my first article in a local newspaper at the age of 13. Words are powerful. Words are impactful. One of my articles was shared over 16000 times and was translated into 10 languages. The scope of my interests ranges from international trade to stoicism and the study of emotional intelligence. I think that everything in the world is interconnected and enjoy building connections between seemingly incompatible issue areas. Let's prove those who don't believe we can wrong!

To beat cancer in Europe, let’s give vaping a chance | The Conservative

The European Union’s Beating Cancer plan is our once-in-a-generation opportunity to tackle cancer by embracing innovation and consumer choice... By following the footsteps of the UK, France, Australia, and New Zealand, we can further achieve our goals by endorsing vaping as a harm reduction tool with incredible potential to help reduce health-associated risks. By doing so, the EU could ensure a better future for smokers.

Wielka Brytania bije kolejne rekordy w walce z nałogiem tytoniowym | VAP

I was quoted here. Zupełnie innego zdania jest Maria Chaplia współpracowniczka ds. Europejskich w Consumer Choice Center, która mówi: „Tak jak substytuty cukru pomagają ludziom zmniejszyć spożycie cukru, tak e-papierosy pomagają ludziom rzucić palenie”, „Nie obwiniamy substytutów cukru za zwiększone spożycie cukru, ale zrobienie tego w przypadku e-papierosów wydaje się dopuszczalne”.

Why Europe needs radical digital reform

My piece on the EU digital single market in the Parliament Magazine. Amazon will soon face antitrust proceedings to address concerns raised by EU authorities regarding the company’s access and use of data. Specifically, they claim the American company can see sensitive commercial information on third-party products such as price or volume. Amazon’s actions would qualify as anti-competitive if the EU finds that it has been using this data to improve the ranking of its own products.

Illicit trade is an existential threat to consumers

The latest OECD report found that between 72 000 and 169 000 children may die from pneumonia every year after receiving counterfeit drugs. Since that was before the world had entered the COVID crisis that turned out to be a public health emergency of global scope, the shocking numbers have likely gone up by now and will continue to rise. That is the cost of flawed policies that have failed to effectively tackle illicit trade.

Vaping and the Gateway Myth

I co-authored a policy paper debunking some of the myths related to vaping. Most anti-vaping arguments fail to take into account the fact that e-cigarettes target tobacco consumers. This is similar to sugar consumption by people who suffer from diabetes: sugar substitutes are not a gateway to sugar because it is because of the harmful effects of sugar that they had to switch. Sugar substitutes are not blamed for increased sugar consumption, and e-cigarettes that serve a similar purpose should be equally endorsed.
