Meet Kamil Zawada, Norwegian Crew Based at London Gatwick

Prior to joining Norwegian you volunteered in Brazil. Tell us about that experience: 

I volunteered in the AIESEC Global Citizen Programme (now Global Volunteer) in Brazil. Global Citizen is an intensive international volunteer abroad experience that enables to work on projects that impact social issues. Through this, AIESEC empower communities by developing the people and enabling them to develop a more sustainable and healthy future. In 2012 I spent three months in Brazil coaching group of young people and helped them with education and understanding of working within international society.

What do you like most about working for Norwegian?

It is company culture and environment I work in. While the work may be difficult sometimes, the company culture shouldn’t add to the stress of the work. On the contrary, the culture should be designed to alleviate the work related stress. This is Norwegian's way. All the management I had a chance to meet at Norwegian has been always supportive and made me feel like a part of Norwegian team. This makes Norwegian unique and this is what like most about the company.

What is your favorite part of your job with Norwegian?

It's meeting people - either if it is colleagues or customers. And it has always been. My best experience at Norwegian was meeting amazing people and making friends. And I believe friends for life.

It is always about the people - It's the people that make the place.

Best memory during a Norwegian flight? 

Being part of the team on the flight to Djibouti

Why was Norwegian's UNICEF mission to Djibouti important/significant to you?

This mission was important to me as I believe in the power of volunteerism. By being part of the mission I wanted to show my support to UNICEF and Norwegian actions. During this humanitarian mission I wanted to contribute my time, skills and knowledge through volunteer actions to create a significant force in making a lasting change in the fight for better lives of those suffering in Yemen's humanitarian catastrophe. 

Why did you want to be apart of Norwegian's UNICEF aid flight

I applied to be part of this flight as I believe volunteerism is a powerful way of engaging people in tackling development challenges, helping to eliminate poverty and to improve basic health or education. In all of these fields, volunteerism makes a specific contribution by generating wellbeing for people and their communities. During this humanitarian mission I want to contribute my time, skills and knowledge through volunteer actions to create a significant force in making a lasting change in the fight for better lives of those suffering in Yemen's humanitarian catastrophe. I am extremely happy that by being part of this mission I can share my support to UNICEF and at the same time promote UNICEF actions.
