How Studybility came to be
Hi! I am Justyna Giezynska. When I was looking for my place in the Polish society after 12 years in the United States, I got hired at a Warsaw HEI to start recruiting international students. I had no clue how. And in 2005 in Poland, no one knew! What I did know was that I stumbled upon something very important to me. International education was love at first sight. Few years later I started Studybility out of need to draw renown experts on internationalisation to Poland and educate international officers.
Since then I expanded the breadth of my activities in international education but internationalisation and staff development never left my focus. In my work, I draw heavily on my experience of studying and living in the USA. I was educated in Cultural Anthropology (BA) at University of California, Santa Cruz and in Russian, Central and Eastern European Studies (MA) at the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University, Washington. These intercultural experiences have shaped my work and fuel my commitment to international education. I have worked at a variety of educational institutions and held an elected, non-paid position at the European Association of International Education (EAIE), of which I am very proud. Now, with this post-COVID-19 version of Studybility I give back to the community which raised me. More about what I do on LinkedIn.
