Giedre Liutkevičiūtė é uma colaboradora assídua de todas as iniciativas portuguesas desenvolvidas na Lituânia. Licenciada em Direito pela Universidade de Mykolas Romeris de Vilnius, a sua grande paixão por Portugal levou-a em 2006 à Universidade de Braga, no âmbito do programa Erasmus. A partir daí não mais largou o contacto com o País, com a Língua e com a Cultura. Deambulando pelo Mundo, afirma com convicção: “o meu ponto final será Portugal”... Entretanto, e porque o caminho para Portugal também é este, este cantinho ao qual chamamos “Olá Vilnius” , é com um enorme prazer que tenho a Giedre “connosco”, traduzindo todos os “posts” que vão colocando aqui. Seja bem vinda!
Giedrė Liutkevičiūtė yra uoli bendradarbė įgyvendinant visas portugališkas iniciatyvas Lietuvoje. Ji baigė teisės studijas Mykolo Romerio universitete, kurių metu, didelės aistros Portugalijai paskatinta, vieną semestrą mokėsi Bragos universitete pagal Erasmus programą. Nuo to laiko neprarado kontakto su šia šalimi, jos kalba ir kutūra. Klajodama po pasauly, ji įsitikinusi tvirtina: „mano paskutinis taškas bus Portugalija“... Kadangi šis kampelis, kurį vadiname “Olá Vilnius”, taip pat yra kelias į Portugaliją, labai džiaugiuosi, kad Giedrė yra čia su mumis ir verčia visus blog‘o tekstus. Ji visada laukiama!
