New chapter. Antonina is here 👋
Hello friend, I wanted to say hi officially! 😀
My name is Antonina and I will be taking over Jan’s newsletter. So from now on you will have to trust me to provide you with reliable info 😉
I know that first I have to build your trust. That’s why I decided to share with you my a few of my passions! First of all, I’m a 24yo gamer. Games have been my biggest passion since I can remember. My most vivid memory is when I was around 6yo and my older brother started to let me play on his computer. I chose the original Knights of the Old Republic (as I already loved SW), but… everything was in English! 😱 So what now? I was so pumped that I took a polish-english dictionary and started translating the game word by word. Pretty cool for a little kid, huh?
So, right now my dreams have come true and my life spins around my biggest passion. If you want to know something more about me, I also do cosplay, have two dachshunds which I love with all my heart, and my all-time favorite game is Mass Effect 🌌
I hope we will have a great time together!
