Recently we’ve had the great pleasure of chatting with Justyna Cyrankiewicz, an intersectional, talented and young woman. Justyna sort of shaped her career in a way that combines her major interests which are: art, technology, design, writing, activism (environmental and social), mental health, and wellbeing. She calls herself a storyteller due to the lack of a proper term that would adequately describe what she does and where she is headed on her professional path. She sees a strong value in smart volunteering and a multidisciplinary approach toward careers.
