As a SOAS graduate in Social Anthropology I've never been afraid of challenging myself with new perspectives or learning new things. In development, changing and challenging one's perspectives is what I believe is more than necessary, if we are to tackle the causes, rather than fixing the symptoms, of global inequality. My passion to make a lasting change brought me to work in NGOs, think tanks, international organisations in Latin America, Central and West-Africa and South Asia, as well as propelling me into politics here at home in Europe. With a range of languages in my repertoire I am now working during the day on securing indigenous peoples' land rights and are actively involved in German and European politics on the topics of migration and EU-Africa-relations.
