volunteer's blog




  • My name is Lucas Szupszynski, I am 25 years old. My great-grandfather came to Brazil in 1936, because of this I am half Brazilian and half Polish. Unfortunatelly I do not live in the middle of the Amazon with animals, but I live in a city called Porto Alegre in the south of Brazil (it is almost the same size as Warsaw). There are a lot of people that migrated from Poland, Germany and Italy.

    My grandparents died before I was born, I never had contact with Polish culture and I have started this volunteering because I wanted to stay in Poland, and in my opinion the culture of a country starts from the children.

    I love sports and I like to be competitive in a good way, let’s have fun guys!

    • Christian school: Brazil x Poland
      In Brazil, I studied my all life in a private Christian school: preschool, primary school, and high school. So, it was interesting to start this project in Salomon School to compare the private primary school in Brazil and Poland. First of all, the number of the students per class. Even [...]
    • Upgrade your system
      You’ve probably worked on an operation system in your life (Windows, Android, iOS, etc). At the beginning it was hard, because it is difficult to adapt to a system, but in a little time you get used to it. In the Windows system for example, you could use MSN Messenger, Internet Explorer and easily use other programs. But [...]
    • 3 things to know before moving to a new country and why I choose Poland
      Many people are unhappy with the country where they live now, but to change is not just to buy a ticket and go away. During my time in Europe I spoke with people that lived for long time in totally different countries, and that’s what I understood about it.
