Choose Your Own #CareerAdventures: with Jessica Pawelski

Hi! My name is Jessy and I am from Oklahoma City. Last year my husband and I decided to leave our corporate jobs and relocate to Krakow Poland with our 2-year-old daughter Margo.
In the process of trying to integrate in our new home and find my ‘Mom Tribe’, I discovered a lack of community. The expat groups were limited and felt a little too elite for me and my situation and I wasn’t proficient enough in Polish to join the local groups.
I met a Polish mother also looking for diversity and together we started a parent’s club that turned into One World – One Heart Multicultural Family Foundation.

Tell me all about your #careeradventures!

None of our adventures are straightforward, it can be pretty messy for all of us although it never seems that way from the outside to everyone else! I’ve had a number of responses from female friends about their own adventures which surprised me, with many women telling me that they feel their story is too ‘messy’, too ‘boring’ or ‘not worthwhile’ sharing to the world – all are descriptions that I have found to be incredibly untrue for every single one of them!
