Bożek graduated from the Faculty of Sculpture at Jan Matejko Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków where she currently continues doctoral studies. She deals with participatory postartistic practices. The artist is interested in such topics as migration, disability and broadly defined poverty and exclusion. Bożek is a publisher of the WIZA-VIS quarterly journal, co-created by refugees in Poland. She is also the originator and facilitator of the bookbinding micro-brand Notebooks from Łuków which aims to economically support refugees in Poland.

The artist also uses her rich gastronomic experience. Bożek is the author of the outstanding ramen soup for the play The Flat by Max Pitegoff and Calla Henkel, performed by Limanka Fashion House. As a confectioner, Sweet Pamela made her debut as a part of "Groszowe Sprawy" (Penny Matters) (Bazar Namysłowska, Warsaw, 2018) curated by Maja Demska. She runs the emergency confectionery The One in which she produces chocolate "morning after" contraception so that, according to the recommendations of the former Minister of Health Konstanty Radziwiłł, it can be swallowed "like candy".

The work of Sweet Pamela is a part of the collection of Muzeum Sztuki in Łódź within Marcin Polak’s project Profession of the Artist.

The aim of Safe as draft is to use artworks from the museum’s collections within Instagram. The project is based on the idea of ​​"prototypes". Invited creators will work with the unique "database", which are resources of Muzeum Sztuki, using the tools available on the platform, such as posts, tags, lives, augmented reality (AR) filters, gifs and videos. Artists will treat the digitized museum collections as the titular "drafts" of their practices.
