We invited MISS CZECH REPUBLIC 2020 Karolina Kopíncová, a model and student of journalism at the Faculty of Social Studies at Masaryk University, for an interview for the April issue of KAM in Brno. If you want to practice your Czech, you should take a closer look at it.

The interview is published both in print and online, so you can not only read it but also listen to it on Podbean Youtube or Spotify, links can be found in the footer of this article. Karolina and I chatted at the Hotel International in Brno – we talked about her student years in Brno, about what goes on in a MISS CZECH REPUBLIC contest, about charitable activities which Karolína is involved in and, last but not least, about modelling and how it has been affected by the on-going pandemic. For more photos from the chat with Karolina and other interesting interviews with personalities from the worlds of culture, science, sports and lifestyle, follow us on our website, social networks and podcast channels.
