Pia Marija Žugman
My name is Pia Marija Žugman and I was born 26. 11. 1998. I am currently in my third year of BA studies on the Faculty of Arts, University of Ljubljana, where I study Polish Studies and Slovene Studies. Since middle school I am a big fan of learning new languages and especially about our Slovene and all foreign literatures and of course cultures that are connected to them. That has led me to translating – I enjoy translating dramas and short stories the most. Withing the university studies I created a few Wikipedia pages on polish authors and participated in the translating project Vaja v prevajanju (Exercise in translating) . I am currently writing my BA under the mentorship of Mateja Pezdirc Bartol (PhD) and Lidija Rezoničnik (PhD), in which I will compare some dramas of Drago Jančar and Slawomir Mrožek – I will focus mainly on the analysis of characters and comparison between both totalitarian systems.
In my free time I am practicing music – currently I am an active member of Chamber Choir KGBL and I also finished Lower-Level Music Studies in violin and Classical Solo Singing. Until last year I was involved in impro theatre, which has brought a new perspective in my life and a new way how I can live my life and simultaneously use it as a tool on stage in front of public. I had to be organised and conscientious in order to find time for all the activities that I am interested in. Every experience has sculpted me in its own way and so I have grown up (and am still growing) in a person, who I am today – diligent, working, punctual, resourceful and competent.
