Ewa arrived in Sydney Australia on 24th January 1983 and was joined by Vlado soon after. In 1984 Ewa commenced her technical career in television with the ABC at Gore Hill. Over a period of 22 years with ABC Television, Ewa gradually climbed her career ladder to gain the position of Technical Director, the first woman in the ABC to achieve this senior position.
On 4th July 1985 Ewa received her Australian citizenship, an honour she truly treasured in her adopted country. On 16th December 1989 Ewa and Vladimir formally married in Sydney and she proudly became Mrs Ewa Kamirski.
