Name: Karolina Leman
Country: Poland. Gdańsk
About: At 2009 I get a Paramedic diploma, this year I get a Bachelor's Degree of Polish Philology. Actually I am studying on 3rd year of Nursing Science on Medical University of Gdańsk, hopefully in June 2012 I will become a nurse. I used to work in an icecream factory, as shoe-shop clerk, emergency ward volunteer, physics tutor, a child - camp guardian, camp paramedic, first aid instructor...
My hobbys is a literature - not very suprising, as I am a polish philologist. With my friend we release a student magazine named Uwaga?Deska. In future I would like to share my professional life beetwen Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine, which are highly challenging branches, but also bring me a lot of satisfaction. I spend eight weeks in a truck, have seen almost all European countries, jumped on bungee, flight by glider, recorded a music album, drove a 48-tonne lorry and finnaly get to Turku as an Erasmus exchange student.
What do I like here? I discover once again a joy of riding a bike in a cold morning air. I like beautiful nature (those rocks! we don't have it!) and lovely wooden houses. Most of all I appreciate Finnish people because of their warm hearts and cool calm.
