On the other hand, she helps creating better connections between universities and StudyPortals, which helps providing the international exposure to the Universities’ study programmes and bringing it to another level.

She believes that you get to know yourself, people around you and the whole world in its beauty through two things in life: learning and travelling. So why not do both?Polina was always enthusiastic about meeting new people from all over the world, expanding the horizons and dreaming big.
