Raised in the cultural melting pot region of Poland, Silesia, Natalia Styrnol has developed a sensitivity to the complexity of the social world since she was young. Her fascination with social phenomena brought her to study sociology at the Jagiellonian University in Kraków, from where she is graduating this year. During her studies, she spent two semesters at the University of Porto, Portugal. Natalia has been constantly involved in various volunteering projects and activist work concerning building an inclusive democratic society. Most recently, she is a co-founder of the grassroots initiative, klimatUJ, at the Jagiellonian University, which aims to further climate action within academia. Academically, Natalia is especially interested in gender (in)equalities, migration, the climate crisis and how all of these intersect. Diverse human experience is what Natalia is especially fascinated with, hence her love of hitchhiking and listening to the stories people are willing to share while spontaneously traveling together.
