Episode 52 - Polina


In today’s episode of Humans of SDU, we jump into the summer with Polina! She came to study Global Management and Manufacturing at SDU from Latvia and plays rugby. Yep, you heard that right! Polina tells us about this sport, how it is to play in Latvia and Denmark, as well as other exciting tidbits of her life.

  • Which SDU building did Polina visit first?
  • Where is Polina playing rugby now?
  • What kind of dance does Polina excel at?

How did we find Polina?

Honestly, it is a miracle Polina hasn’t made her appearance on Humans of SDU before. Why? Well, Polina is one of Franka’s closest friends – her ‘ride or die’, one might say! They met at Lærdansk almost two years ago and the rest is history. Not only can you see (or hear, to be precise) their connection in this episode, but our lovely first-time host Pohali absolutely shines!

Portrait of Polina

“That’s why I was so attracted to rugby because it was so different – you are part of the team, a family. It is team sport, so you need to communicate, you need to be friendly and I think that also changed me personally. I became more open minded, talkative and became easier to be friends with.”


New drinking game: take a shot every time “you know” and “like” is said in this episode. Let us know how long you last!
