My story

My name is Magda Zena. I was born in Poland in a half-Polish, half-Arabic family so intercultural communication was a skill I learnt at a dinner table. I travel a lot. Up to now I have been to 29 countries in 3 continents. I lived in 5 and I regard myself a glomad. Since 2018 I have been living in London.

I am passionate about arts and science and I believe that the best fruit is brought by gentle balance between the two because to solve a problem we must pay attention to facts as much as we need to be creative.

I am an expert in turning things upside – down and combining different fields of knowledge. I have been in love with philosophy since I was 16. I have graduated from the Academy of Performing Arts at the age of 19. As a student I combined linguistics, cultural studies, philosophy and psychology to become and expert in communication. I completed my PhD in psychology of conflict in 2011.Since then I work as a researcher, a coach, a consultant and a writer.
