Dream Job of Anna Medrykowska

I am not sure if it was 2001 or 2002 when I have met Anna (Ania) for the first time. Also I am not sure any more if we were in a bus to or from Poland to the Netherlands, yest there were the times, I was traveling 20 hours by bus to get to the Netherlands. What I remember is that Ania and me, we spent talking the whole journey like we have known each other for ages. And funny enough we are both from Warsaw / Poland. Now thanks to the modern technology, even we live in two different countries we are still in touch and therefore, Ania agreed to share her dreams with all of you…

Name:                   Anna Medrykowska

Country / city:        London, UK     Ania

What is your dream?

Travel the world with my son to come and my husband.

What is my dream job?

Working for the European Commission in Brussels, in an international environment.

How did you achieve your goal = dream job? / how do you plan to achieve your goal=dream job?

Sometimes it can be a lengthy and difficult process. You have to take exams so studying is essential.
I always keep myself up to date with European affairs, look out for people who already work for the institution and can give me advice and volunteer to enhance my CV and learn new skills. Languages are also important and I have always put great emphasis on them.

What is your tip to others concerning the Dream Job / Life?

First of all, research so that you know a lot about what you want to do or where you want to work. And be brave and persistent. Sometimes getting what you want might require a lot of time but if something is truly in your heart, you mustn’t give up. It is worth fighting for that one job which you hopefully will be enjoying for the rest of your life. Do not let the fear of risk prevent you from going after what you really want.

Who are you?

I am a Pole who is currently living in London where I finished uni, and where I am now working in a UAE headquartered oil company. In love with Brazil, travelling and dance, the latter currently on hold due to baby Max coming very soon.

Dream Job of Natalia Uzieblo-Kiyak

I have met Natalia, not so long ago during one of the networking events. This time it was a 14 years anniversary of existence of ToP (Polish Women association in The Netherlands). We are both from Warsaw and now happily we are both living in The Hague – thanks to the ToP, I am meeting more and more very interesting, fun, intelligence and special people.

Name:                              Natalia Uzieblo-Kiyak

Country / city:               Den Haag, Netherlands, I come from Warsaw, Poland          Natalia

What is your dream?                                                                                                             

My dream is our Planet with clean air, fresh water and food for everybody. On 20 August 2013 we officially have used the resources of our Mother Earth (WWF). My dream is all the people waking up and no war because of lack of water around year 2050*.

What is my dream job?

Work for the development of eco-energy, pollution-free, eco-farms producing fruits and vegetables without the use of pesticides and artificial fertilizers, reducing deforestation, providing drinking water to people who lack it, expand awareness of the people to whom nothing is missing. I believe that behind the corner, probably something even better is waiting for me.
The key word is awareness and being non-stop aware. A job where I can be myself without shutting down myself after crossing the threshold, that’s what I wish to everyone.
At this point I would like the reader to pay attention to the fact that each of our choice in favour of this or that product, is against or for the planet. If at least one person will be making as much as possible selections pro the Planet,it was worth to write these words.

How to reduce our ecological foot print and take care of Earth every day? WWF recommends that you use there strain of power, replace the car for a bicycle or public transport as soon as possible,eat the food, which was created in an environmentally friendly way and choose products with organic certification. When buying fish and fish products check you have the MSC certification ensures that the fish come from sustainable fisheries. Buy products which were produced close to the place where you live. You will be sure they weren’t transported from too far and you are not paying for polluting the air by the car which was transporting the food.

How did you achieve your goal = dream job? / how do you plan to achieve your goal=dream job?

My plan is to meet people who care about the situation in which we are now.  

What is your tip to others concerning the Dream Job / Life?

At this point,I am thinking ofAhimsa. AsMahatma Gandhisaid, is not only not to kill, but do not harm any creature in thought, word or deed. **

Who are you?

I am wife of my loving husband Utku and mother of Miko Ali. We are expats now. We are in the beginning of our trip through life and I know it will be a beautiful journey. We have Polish and Turkish origins and nomadic characters. This sounds like a good scenario.

*Philip Wollen, ex City Bank’s CEO, famous speech,  

**Ahimsa does not simply mean non-killing. Himsa means causing pain to or killing any life out of anger or for a selfish purpose or with the intention of injuring it. Refraining from so doing is ahimsa. Ahimsa means not to injure any creature by thought, word or deed. True ahimsa should mean a complete freedom from ill- will and anger and hate and an overflowing love for all. Ahimsa is the attribute of the soul and therefore to be practiced by everybody in all the affairs of life.
