Meet Justyna. She loves good content, smart marketing and creative community building. She almost always draws something. Right now she takes care of EC communication on social networks to engage and have fun!; she creates super-creative videos, carries out research and reports drafting. Justyna has strength for convincing even the most stubborn clients simply by staring at them in silence ;)
When she is not making magic on her desk, you are likely to find her exploring nature, reading or painting. She has a nomadic lifestyle. Her camera rarely leaves her side.
