About Ania Bajerska

I am a second-year student at the University of St Andrews, pursuing a Joint Honours Degree in Economics and Sustainable Development. My vision is to enable more sustainability-oriented initiatives through financial tools and market-based solutions. One of my other interests is literature, that is why my summer research project is an attempt to understand the representation of nature in current children’s environmental literature and define the relationships between “nature literacy”, education, sustainability and social transition. Outside of my studies I enjoy staying active (water sports are my favourite) and baking.

I love the wobbly pole theory!

Maybe in the times when I feel  like loosing balance it is because I have just appeared at the top of the pole?

It was such an exciting and useful read, Ania! Thank you for sharing your reflection on personal development as a scholar - I feel that a lot of it resonates with my own thoughts :)

Thank you! I believe that an honest conversation and admitting some insecurities can be powerful in changing how other sholars will enter their scholarship :)

This is great inter-disciplinary research! 

Do we know if there are any authors currently working on the ideal books that you describe, where the cause of a poor environment, the impact on the world around us, and the preventative measures that we can use are addressed? If not you should totally write it!

Thank you for your comment Catherine! It is definitely the idea that crossed my mind a few times... Because of the summer research being conducted at such unfortunate time I might not have been able to cover all the aspects I wanted, but, who knows, maybe I am two or three essays away from making the decision to become an author myself :)
