A student of Henryk Mikołajczyk, she graduated from the institution in 2012, and went on to study in Stuttgart. In 2017 she earned her diploma with the highest distinction. She studied for her MLA in Geneva, where she now works on her DLA.
She has taken part at international competitions since 2007, winning the first prize and a special prize in Plovdiv (Bulgaria, 2007), finishing first at the International Marimba Competition in Fermo (Italy, 2008) and in Paris (2009), as well as at Bavarian Radio’s Marimba Competition in Bamberg (2016).
