Brigitte Wezel-Janssens

About Me: 

Coming from Belgium, having traveled a lot through South East Asia, and other European and African countries, I have always been interested in women action, and in their decisive roles in many aspects of society. I wrote several articles about women community-centered action in these countries I visited (Burma, China, Cambodia, Thailand, etc). I have many passions : reading (I am currently reading lots of women authors), traveling, meeting people, and new places, I love the first impressions of discovery when you get in a country in which you have never been, I love to write (I wrote a novel last year and intend to publish it, called Runaway Girl), I like artistic expressions (cinema, painting, etc.), and I like to study. I am currently doing a specialization in global leadership and management in Portland PSU. AND I am pregnant, so a very huge adventure lies ahead, I am also married to Geoffroy, who is actually working in a company here in Portland. I love this city, its dynamism, originality, creative "effervescence" and the particular role the citizen is playing in it, you can really feel a Portland community and I like that!

My Passions: 
Reading, traveling, writing, music (reggae, dub, french music, and many other styles), art
My Challenges: 
Find my place of excellence, the place where I can give the most and the best, find a place where I feel a certain necessity of action.
My Vision for the Future: 
A more sustainable world, a world where each human (women or men) can have a say in defining our global common changes. A places with less inequalities, and more common harmony towards our future.
My Areas of Expertise: 
Women's rights, writing, organizing, creativity, languages, politics (european), global leadership
My Languages: 
French, English-German-Italian-Dutch
