I work for GIZ, currently as a key account manager in the EU liaison office, based in the Frankfurt area. From 2014 to 2018, I advised the Southern African Development Community (SADC) on governance of regional integration topics. There I worked with governments, non-state actors and journalists in Botswana, eSwatini, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa and Zambia.
My background is in communication and international relations. I graduated from the University of Dundee with an MA (Hons) in International Relations and History. I am also a certified Management Assistant in Marketing Communication.
I have been a consultant for GIZ and SADC, did some journalism for journalistenbüro röhr:wenzel, and interned with The Local Germany, Ashoka México and the Institute for Cultural Diplomacy. As a student, I started the online news outlet dusamedia.com, did an exchange year at Simon Fraser University, served as a student representative, and won awards for the best history undergrad dissertation from the University of Dundee and a highly commended paper from the Undergraduate Awards.
I care too much about US politics and not enough about updating my blog.
