Current affiliation: Artes Liberales Academy / Warsaw, Poland

 I am a Ph.D. Student at Artes Liberales Academy, where I am finishing Inter-University Program of Interdisciplinary PhD Studies in Philosophy and Oriental Studies. I focus on early Arabic philosophy (arab. falsafa) and their vision of educational and formative nature of philosophy. I am interested in this topic, because falsafa is one of examples of beautiful intercultural and interfaith dialogue in the history of humanity. It also helps me to understand the formative role of philosophy nowadays. In addition to this, since 2015 I pursue a writing and journalist career, focusing on human rights, especially of economically and socially excluded people: homeless, refugees, sick and old. I also conduct a lot of workshops concerning human rights, migration, Islam and social media.
