My Background and Career
I currently work as project coordinator in Rzeszow Sport Club for People with Imparied Hearing and Deaf. I also work on different EU projects dedicated to hearing impaired people. I am an assistant coordinator in EFS project „Deaf on start!” in Rzeszow Sport Club for Deaf ”RES -GEST” . Previous work experience will help me in this project aimed at mobilizing people who are deaf and help upgrading their professional qualifications. I plan to help hearing impaired people by raising their professional qualifications and proving sign language translations for them.
I have experience in working with deaf women in frames of the project financed by Batory Foundation „Equal chances for deaf women” – educational project concerning equal status of women and men. Project include educational courses in health prevention and realisation of personal interests: swimming course, first aid, fitness for deaf women.
Social (discriminations…). Which ones? work with the deaf gives me great satisfaction but it also requires greater involvement and appropriate attitudes and approaches to different issues from their point of view.
Opportunities: professional experience, knowledge of sign language, commitment and desire to help people with disabilities.
ignorance of the problems of people with disabilities in society, low level of education in this social group, isolation and social exclusion, at the beginning- communication problems
difficulties in convincing people with disabilities to change thinking and attitude
I listen and I pay attention to other people problems.
I like partnership building.
