Nina – Washington ”PITR set me on my path for my career… opened up a whole new world to me that sent me to graduate school to study the post communist world and landed me at a job in the international affairs community, focusing on democracy assistance… I have contacts all over the globe ready to support my work. I grew as a person, a thinker and a friend.”
Judith – Cape Town ”I’m a slightly more uncommon PITR attendee – being neither Polish, nor an official student of the language, the country or the people. Call it an exercise in empathy-making and community-building, if you will; PITR connected me to a community of people dotted all around the globe whose common ancestry, language or location continue to intrigue me.”
