Alicja Rega will represent Poland in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in Tbilisi. Alicja studies at the Vogal Art Centre at Rzeszów and took part in many festivals and vocal contests in Poland and abroad. Previously she won a TV programme called 'Mali Giganci' (The Small Giants) in the category Best Voice. She reached second place in a talent show called 'Hit Hit Hurra!' and has won awards in Lithuania, Malta, Russia, Estonia, Bulgaria, Germany and the Czech Republic.
The most important things in life to Alicja are her family and music. She gets her inspiration from jazz and classical music, and relaxes by crossing forests and travelling off the beaten track. She also likes cycling, skating and snowboarding and loves animals, mostly cats. During the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, she will represent Poland with a song called Mój Dom (My Home). Alicja hopes to encourage listeners to reflect during her song.
