What do you love about working with students?
I love the complexity of all the teenagers I have worked with throughout the years. I deeply appreciate their authenticity and their desire to pursue their dreams which is often combined with their pressure to conform. I love their various ways to express themselves through the use of their creativity, through art or in writing. I offer safe space to listen to what they are trying to say, even when they don’t have the words for it yet, or when I am the first person they have ever told. I am a fierce advocate for every outsider and survivor I work with.
What do you do for your own wellness?
I love to fly kites! I have a good number of kites of various sizes and I love to fly them a couple of times a week. I love travelling and discovering new places and cultures, and I really enjoy visiting various National Parks and remote places. I know a lot about art history, I enjoy looking at art and talking about art, and I enjoy creating art including photography. I enjoy being in my garden and taking care of my epiphyllums, which are a variety of orchid cacti with astonishing flowers the size of a dinner plate. I love going to the beach with my dog Brian.
Martina speaks Czech, so if you want to chat in Czech don’t hesitate to come to say hi!
