Meet the YPSS Board!

Our meetings are open to everyone with an idea. We will help you find a venue, speakers, and the funding to make it possible.

Julia Wojtkowski


Julia is a junior at Benjamin Franklin college from New York City. She is double majoring in Economics and History of Art and is a part of a multitude of student clubs at Yale and in NYC. Having grown up in Greenpoint and spending her childhood summers in Poland, she is deeply connected to her Polish roots. Feel free to reach out, she is always happy to talk and go on a stroll around campus, discover a new coffee shop for a study session, or simply grab a meal together.

Hanna Adamski


Hanna is a senior at Branford College majoring in Astrophysics with a certificate in Statistics and Data Science. While she was born in the states (in Houston, Texas :)), most of her family lives in South Poland, specifically in the regions of Górny and Dolny Śląsk. She can't wait to see what this year has in store for the Polish club; from cooking in the student kitchens to Kopernicus nights, she is looking forward to meeting each and every one of y'all. A little more about Hanna is that she enjoys reading science fiction & romance novels, doing Sudoku and the New York Times Crossword Puzzle, as well as going on spontaneous adventures with friends and family.

Natalia Wyszkowski


Natalia is a junior in Morse College majoring in English. She lives in the states, but her family is from northeastern Poland and she loves visiting whenever she can. In addition to her studies of English literature, Natalia has a keen interest in various Slavic literatures; primarily Polish, Russian, and Czech. If you can't find her reading yet another rom-com (Book Lovers by Emily Henry is her current favorite), you can probably find her near horses. A life-long equestrian, Natalia is also on the women's competing team for Yale Polo. She is particularly looking forward to more of our Polish traditional events—evenings spent with friends and fantastic Polish food are evenings very well spent.
