I studied Automation and Robotics for 2.5 years in Krakow, Poland. I later moved to Billings, MT in the US to help take care of my grandparents. In Billings I continued my studies but changed my major to Aeronautical Science.  
** During my studies in Poland I took courses on control theory, worked with Matlab/Simulink, C++ and Qt.
+
** Which languages do you speak?
* I don't do a lot of programming at my studies but I still like it and that's why I wanted to participate in Google Summer of Code. I hope to learn more about how opensource collaboration efforts are managed and have some fun programming.
+
I speak Polish and English fluently.
** I have no previous experience with Google Summer of Code and am quite unfamiliar with how it all works.
+
** What's your overall background? ''The general field you work in or are studying, e.g. computer science, physics, artificial intelligence, control theory...''
* I had a friend back in Poland who participated in GSoC and she chose Octave and that's why I wanted to give it a try too.
+
During my studies in Poland I took courses on control theory. I simulated physical problems and how to control them. The tools I used were Matlab/Simulink. As part of general programming courses I learned C++ and Qt.
 
+
* Why do you want to participate in the Google Summer of Code? What do you hope to gain by doing so?
 +
I don't do a lot of programming at my current studies but I still have a desire for programming. I want to participate in GSoC to be able to contribute to Octave, learn more about how such big projects work and have fun doing so.
 +
** Please also describe your previous experience with the GSoC, if any. ''Includes any community-bonding, mentor experience or application, not necessarily accepted. We use this subquestion to identify which students are unfamiliar with how the program goes, providing further support. It has no negative impact on your rating!''
 +
I have no previous experience with Google Summer of Code and am quite unfamiliar with how it all works.
 +
* Why are you choosing Octave?
 +
I had an acquaintance back in Poland who participated in GSoC and she chose Octave. I also worked in Matlab some and appreciate the value of these computational programs. That is why I would like to contribute to Octave.
