Other informationPSYCHOLOGY
She has a passion for psychology. "Apart from short track, my biggest passion for years has been psychology. I have not had the chance to study psychology yet, but it is something that fascinates me. Sometimes I use my psychology knowledge on the ice rink, but during competitions you can't think or analyse too much. You have to react quickly using your instincts, the practice of certain movements and your intelligence." (, 27 Nov 2019)

She has studied in the Faculty of Economics at University of Gdansk in Sopot, Poland. (, 18 Mar 2021;, 11 Jan 2022)
