Magdalena consistently takes huge pride in her heritage, underlining her identity as a denizen of the borderlands. Although she hails from Czech Cieszyn, she has always viewed the city of Cieszyn as a place unified by the river rather than divided by a border. Generations of her ancestors were marked by a rich tapestry of multiculturalism and religious diversity, which is why during her historical studies at the Jagiellonian University in Kraków, she focused on the cultural heritage of Cieszyn Silesia, especially from a religious perspective.
Her deep fascination with diverse cultures fuels her love for globetrotting, exploring historical landmarks and the natural world, engaging in enriching conversations with people and savoring delectable cuisine. She sometimes loses herself in the captivating narratives of Agatha Christie’s novels or “The Lord of the Rings”. Additionally, she has an innate and familial passion for music. Particularly, she enjoys singing duets with her younger sister and listening to traditional Georgian music.
