My Story

I was born in the Czech Republic. As far as I can remember I always loved learning languages. When I graduated High School I was given an opportunity to volunteer in the USA. While there, my English speaking and writing greatly improved. When I came home 5 years ago I set a goal for myself. The goal was to never forget the language.

While abroad I also acquired some communication skills which I previously lacked. Mainly because of the lack of social interactions caused by the need for surgical corrections of my posture and walking. These surgeries were correcting the effect of my Cerebral palsy.

I thoroughly enjoy talking with people and sharing the things I know. My disability also helps me to have empathy for people who lack confidence and need support.

I set out to continuously improve on things I learned in the past and help as many people as I can in the process,

This website marks another step in the process of affirming that I am crippled and have a lot to give. Attributing some of my skills to the fact that dealing with my disability necessitated developing those skills.

I am happy and ready to help everyone who needs me.
