Apart from a sound academic background in Economics and Public Policy, I have experience as an EU Advocacy Assistant and NGO Volunteer. I am currently working in an agency that is committed to promoting peace and friendship through volunteering. I am a firm believer that it only takes goodwill and perseverance to change this world and that small changes trigger big change. Having worked in an international environment pretty much all of my life I have been exposed to interacting with people from a variety of backgrounds and cultures. I have come to appreciate the diversity each of these brings and I believe this has taught me to become more aware of the differences that nonetheless unite us.
