Agata Pyzik, Polish cultural critic and author of "Poor But Sexy", reflects on divisions between Eastern Europe and the West and the prejudice she sees against Eastern European migrants. "I don't want to feel I have to conceal my history in order to pass for somebody worthwhile in English conversation, or to be ashamed that my country was historically poorer or was a part of the Eastern bloc," she says.
