Cześć! I’m Jennifer Polasek, a current undergrad at Grand Valley State University studying Writing and Advertising/Public Relations. Michigan is home for me, but this semester I’m so thankful to be studying abroad in Krakow, Poland. Thanks to the support of my community, university, and family I get to fulfill a dream of mine by going back to the homeland of my great great-grandparents. I would also like to extend a special thanks to the Benjamin A. Gilman Scholarship Program for granting me an award to be able to move forward with this incredible opportunity.
