About me. I’m a political scientist and lawyer, and had the priviledge to work in countries around the world.
I was born in the autumn of 1988 in Southern Germany and dedicated my career to a better understanding, the promotion, and the advancement of international law and international relations. A strong sense of justice keeps me going. Long-distance running teaches me to be perseverant. Throughout my carreer I had the priviledge to work in an international environment, while living in Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, and South Africa. I speak English, German, Dutch and French and have basic knowledge of Spanish and Arabic.
