Born in Warsaw (Poland), Anna Maria Władyka devotes most of her energy to languages and journalism. She holds a master's degree in Applied Linguistics (Conference Interpreting with English and German) at the University of Warsaw.
Anna currently works as a freelance translator and interpreter of English and German and as a language teacher. She was awarded the Erasmus scholarship at the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz (Germany), the Comenius scholarship in Rouen (France) and participated in Model European Union Strasbourg in 2013 as a printed press journalist. She also had a chance to translate for the Directorate-General for Translation at the European Commission in Luxembourg.
Her other academic interests include audiovisual, literary and machine translation (she was invited to speak during FIT XXth World Congress in Berlin in August 2014), as well as foreign languages such as Spanish and French.
Anna believes that citizen journalism plays a central role in the European democracy. After hours, she relaxes in the rhythms of salsa, by discovering gems of cinematography, or by drawing.
