MONIKA PIASCIK is a member of the Finance Board. She is concentrating in Government, with a focus on post-Communist democracies and economies. Her interest in the business side of fashion emerged when she observed familiar brands flood into her own post-Communist country. Born in Poland and having lived in Massachusetts for most of her life, she is an advocate of dressing for yourself, not for the weather. On campus, she can be found baking 80 cinnamon rolls for her PAFees or pitching to companies in an effort to become a less approachable Miranda Priestly.
