Coordinator of Scholarships
Natalia Ostapowicz was born in New York City. She currently attends Millennium Brooklyn High School in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Despite the fact that Natalia was born in the United States, she reads and speaks fluently in Polish and appreciates Polish traditions and customs. Natalia attended Polish school at the parish of St. Cyril and Methodius Church until the age of ten. After moving to Queens, she continues to study Polish at the Polish school of St. Faustyna in Ozone Park. In her free time, Natalia works as a volunteer in her Polish school as well as in a Polish daycare. Natalia takes an active part in Polish organizations at St. Stanislaus Bishop-Martyr Church in Ozone Park. She often plays the guitar in church and reads during the Holy Mass. Additionally, in 2015, Natalia was little Miss Polonia Ozone Park, representing her community at the 78th Pulaski Day Parade in Manhattan.
Natalia enjoys spending time with her friends, skiing, and playing beach volleyball. Natalia also likes to travel and explore new places. But, what Natalia likes most is visiting Poland and her family who lives there. Natalia hopes that in the future, she will help many people and use her fluent knowledge of the Polish language as well.
The Coordinator of Scholarships is responsible for maintaining a database of currently offered scholarships for the youth by non-profit, private, governmental and non-governmental institutions, for the effective implementation of a possible scholarship initiative of the Polish Youth Association and for providing all information on scholarships and education funding opportunities to members of the association and the youth.
