Aniela was born in an already democratic Poland. Her deep interest in culture and history is rooted in the city where she was raised that was once a Jewish shtetl. Aniela decided to pursue her interests through Culture and Media Management studies. She developed a deep understanding of culture as well as management and leadership skills by organizing various events including art exhibitions, interdisciplinary projects concerning the complex Jewish history as well as festivals meant to activate the local community. She then committed herself to studying spatial economy at the University of Warsaw. During her studies, she lead the Student Research Association and conducted a project focused on creating user-oriented common spaces on campus. Currently, Aniela is at the Humboldt University in Berlin analyzing interactions in academic spaces. Next, Aniela plans to work on the revitalization of Polish public spaces and begin her Ph.D studies.
