Sporting philosophy / motto"Sport is beautiful, not only in winning. The whole journey, including the failures, falls, tears and pain, is one of the best things that can happen to you on the way to the top. The most difficult work is reaching the top and staying there because everyone expects a lot from champions, and champions have to demand a lot from themselves." (pzls.pl, 17 May 2018)  
Other informationART
She has a passion for drawing and art. "I like to draw and I do it whenever I have time. In the future I would like to improve my skills. I don't just draw on paper, I also draw on my phone and experiment with a stylus [writing utensil]. One day I hope to start painting on canvas, but for this you need more time. In the past I had to choose between sport or art school. Sport won but I am still attracted to artistic activities, drawing, creating cards for special occasions or doing decorations."
