#8 Ewi

Ewelina Agata Zbyszynska

Life is easier in Slovakia

that’s why I’m here.

My today’s guest is Ewelina Agata Zbyszynska who came to Slovakia from Poland in 2006. Her first experience was a job interview in Žilina.

She wanted the job because she felt she could get more than what she had in her own country, and she wanted more than the factory job that many of her peers who emigrated to UK had.

Ewi has had a life-changing Slovak experience, which started in a call centre with “a bunch of Polish people” and so far led her to become a project leader in a multinational company.

Twelve years on, Ewi still enjoys her Slovak experience.

We talk about Slovak dreams and Slovak nightmares, the good and bad things about living in Slovakia and, spoiler alert!, it all ends with a smile. Because for Ewi, Slovakia now feels like home.
