According to another assumption, she used the name Andrzej. Disguised as a student, she began studying with other scholars. She was diligent, she worked. Unfortunately, after she got seek a doctor informed everyone that she was lying, she is a girl, not a boy. Nawojka faced punishment, although professors and students stood up for her. She had to leave universities and enter a monastery. There, having become famous for her knowledge and wisdom, she became an aboot after many years. According to another version, after being removed from the university, she ran a monastery nursery. The legend of Nawojka lives on to this day, one of the dormitories and the main street in Czarna Wieś are named after her.
