Aleksandra Żywińska is a student of Polish Philology at the Jagiellonian University, with one sinister feature: she can notice even the tiniest mistake committed by an author, and would never hesitate to point it out. Usually she is an optimistic, kind and cheerful singer, who writes poetry, dances and bakes, but after hours she transforms into a bloodthirsty proofreader/editor and simply nitpicks. Her only justification is the fact that the quality and correctness of writing have priority over the suffering of authors.
