How a Child Star Broke Barriers and Made Waves in Poland: Interview with Patricia Kazadi

How a Child Star Broke Barriers and Made Waves in Poland: Interview with Patrycja Kazadi P. A. Ney/TFN

Born to a mixed-race family in 1980s Poland, Patricia Kazadi always seemed destined for a life under the spotlight and glare of the camera. Aged two she landed her first theatrical role, when she was singing in the mirror in a shoe shop and a theatrical director approached her mother. Since then she's gone on to star in dozens of television programmes as a host, presenter and broadcaster. As if that wasn't enough she's also an accomplished musician (currently working on her third album) and businesswoman. What is it like to be on television on Poland? How does Patricia Kazadi deal with the stress and strain of a life in the public eye? Did any racism in Poland ever hold her back? In this interview with our host Patrick Ney, Patricia talks about all this and much more.
