We continue the series of interviews under the common title: “My American Experiences“.
As part of this project, we invite personalities of Polish public, social, economic, cultural and political life who were participants in the programs of the US Department of State (including the Fulbright Program, IVLP, Edward R. Murrow Program, Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program and other). We will ask guests about their experiences in the US and the impact of these experiences on their public life, professional or scientific career.
