The most unusual thing that ever happened to her is that she met her American husband, Thomas Mann, in Germany 3 years after having lived and worked there as a pharmacist. Thomas and Ewa have been married for almost 13 years and live in Narragansett with their two dogs Stasiu (a Morkiepoo) and Tucker (a Lhasa Apso).
Ewa wants to use the title of Mrs. RI America to be a positive role model to young women and to bring awareness to causes that are important to me such as prescription drug abuse and the opioid epidemic.
