cafébabel: What were you doing the week before you came to Paris?
Confined in my room, I was writing end-of-term essays for my university. Needless to say, it was just hours before the final deadline.
cafébabel: Before that?
I was working as an intern at the European Commission, as a bartender in one of Warsaw's famous café-clubs, taking European Studies, studying political science and, regrettably, also law.
cafébabel: What do you have in common with cafébabel?
We share a blind, uncompromising and hopeless love for the European Union.
cafébabel: And with Robert Lewandowski?
Not much. Apparently, my brother looks a bit like Robert.
cafébabel: If you could choose a nationality other than Polish, what would it be?
Definitely French. After merely two days at cafébabel, I almost managed to set up a trade union here. Riots and baguettes – what more could you ask for?
cafébabel: Where would we find you on a typical Friday night?
On my way to the Ultimate Frisbee tournament. Or at a training at the Ultimate Frisbee.
cafébabel: Your favourite book? A film that you hate?
I'll risk passing for a complete arrogant jerk and say: "Hopscotch" by Julio Cortázar. Zoolander is the worst (and at the same time the best) film that I've ever seen.
cafébabel: Would you rather take a walk in the Warsaw’s Łazienki Park with the political scientist Jadwiga Staniszkis, or go to a 24-hour off-licence with the rebel writer Dorota Masłowska?
The off-licence with Dorota, hands down.
cafébabel: What’s your favourite planet?
I think it's still Earth, although this year I had my doubts about it. The thing is that you can't get hummus anywhere else but Earth.
cafébabel: What can you tell us about Poland?
I don't lose hope. Together, we can change things.
cafébabel: What’s your mission for the next ten months at cafébabel?
To create the United States of Europe, but without Trump and with a tasty cuisine.
