One of the principles behind the blog was to introduce to my readers some UK-based Poles and their views on living in the UK – why they are here, what they admire, what they miss. In a short, Q&A form.
I’ve decided to ask a few people initially to answer five short questions. What I didn’t expect was the fact people are willing to post their entire lives for everyone to see on Facebook, but are occasionally sensitive when they are asked to say what they really think. “I don’t know how I could open up to the world,” was the answer one of my friends gave me. Oh dear, trouble.
So, while some people are still mulling over their answers to the short “Pole poll”, I’ve decided to spread the word and ask those questions directly on the blog.
If you are Polish, are currently living in the UK, or have lived in the UK – I want to hear from you! Here are the 5 questions in the Pole poll:
1. Who are you?
2. Why are you in / have you chosen the United Kingdom?
3. If I went back home to Poland, I’d take with me…
4. I’ll never get used to…
5. I miss…
That’s it. Easy, eh? You can be as concise as you want, you can elaborate, you can add things from yourself. As long as whoever is reading this can get a sense of your relationship with the UK. And if you could add a picture of yourself, that would be ideal.
If you would like to be featured on this blog or know someone you think would be interested, forward this post to them or email me:
If you need encouragement, here’s how I answered my own questions.
