Polina Mandrik
Representative in Russia

“I like to think of my job as glue or magnet, which puts different elemets together. Be it a meet-up for sustainable development in Kazan, which we are working on right now, an ambitious inclusion-oriented initiative We Will Roll You or intercultural partnership, which is typical for most of our projects, one head with the whole vision of goals, ressources, roadmap and plan B is always needed. To get a concept from the head and let it grow into real life, watching how it touches and involves other people, is the most inspiring part.”
