I have discovered my passion for travelling when I was 15 during a two weeks school trip to Mauritania. Since this experience I have taken every opportunity to go abroad.
For more than ten years I have been an active member of the German association Friends of Mauritania. Work experiences in a local NGO in Nouakchott and at the German embassy in Yaounde, as well as a long trip through Latin America, convinced me that I want to work in the humanitarian field.
Born in Germany, I have studied languages and politics in France. Thanks to my Master in International Relations with specialization in international and non-governmental organization I have acquired theoretical and practical knowledge about the humanitarian work.
Just like Lisa I have been travelling for a couple of years now. I had the opportunity to visit multiple countries, but I have a particular passion for Asia.
I have been member of a couple of big NGOs: Greenpeace, Sea Shepherd, WWF etc. But I have also worked with small scale associations which are notably active in Africa.
After my first trip to Asia in 2006, I have been impressed by the marks of the Tsunami and the people I met. This is when I got the first ideas of how I could contribute. Finally, it was my trip to Latin America in 2013 and the people I met there that completely convinced me that I want to work in the humanitarian field.
After three years of heading a digital communication agency with my associate, I am a freelancer today.
