Meet the Flockers: Anna Przewoznik

January 21, 2022

Our Meet The Flockers series gives us a chance to show the humans behind Stephenson Law. We stop, take a moment, and spend some time on the sillier side of life.

From bucket lists to bugbears,  this series sheds a light on what makes our flock tick.

Introducing Anna Przewoznik, fintech fanatic, toastie enthusiast, and secret artist! Take it away Anna…

What’s your favourite board game?

I am not a huge board games enthusiast. But Monopoly has a special place in my heart. I used to play it with my mum during those long Polish winter evenings, when I was little, around 8 or 9 maybe. We would prepare a big plate of cheese toasties with ketchup and build our property empires. It may explain my passion for fintech (which is about moving money around), or shopping (more like).

Have you ever experienced a life-changing moment, if so, what was it?

When I moved to the UK, I worked as a waitress for about 3 years. I was a totally miserable waitress, although very well organised and efficient, which kept me in the job. I had no idea what to do with my life, and in particular, what to do with my Polish law degree, which was pretty useless here in England. One day a customer started chatting to me. He clearly noticed my misery. He quizzed me about my background and told me about a course called Graduate Diploma in Law, which could allow me to effectively convert to English law.

If it wasn’t for that chat, I would not have been where I am now.

What did you want to be when you were growing up?

When I was very little – about 4 or 5, I was really fascinated by stationery shops, so I really wanted to work in a stationery shop. I loved how organised everything was and every notepad or pen represented so many exciting things that I could create. I used to love drawing and painting. I even won some competitions. Later I wanted to be a figure skater. About the age of 16 I lost focus and I had no idea what I wanted to do, so I decided to become a lawyer. Luckily for me, I really enjoy it 😊

Would you rather be able to Copy/Paste in real life, or Undo?

I’ve given both options some thought. If I could copy my family (who live in Poland) and paste them into my life here in England, then I would not hesitate to choose Copy/Paste. If that was not an option, I would definitely go with Undo. Who wouldn’t want to learn from their mistakes and undo them afterwards!
