Specialist in raising funds outside the budget, the originator and implementer of many cultural initiatives. Constantly busy, she spends her free time mostly... working! She is also active in the "Jantar" Association, of which she is president. Critical towards others, but also herself, demanding and uncompromising, she can find herself in any situation. She is the type of person about whom we say "the right person in the right place". In 2015, she received the award of the Marshal of the Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship for achievements in the field of artistic creation, dissemination and protection of cultural assets. In October 2017 she received the badge "Meritorious for Polish Culture" awarded by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage.

Justyna Rucińska

Office worker (photo: Edyta Machul)

She appeared in the secretariat and immediately found herself in "our reality" - probably because as a graduate of managerial economics she has no problems with making the right decisions. She analyzes the situation, including the atmosphere at work and the boss's attitude ;), with a smile and her usual precision. However, she is not like a robot, on the contrary! She is a woman of flesh and blood and muscles, active, fond of people and shopping, as well as a good book and film. And despite the fact that - as she says - everything must be buttoned up the last button, sometimes she would like to be an incurable easy-going individual. Which she carefully hides at her workstation.
