Experience with YS: Studying for my Master’s in Social and Cultural Studies in 2010, I wanted to be involved in intercultural work hands on. So I did a web search and found Young SIETAR. Jana Holla was the President then and she encouraged me to apply for the position of Training Coordinator and I was elected. Project-wise I had the pleasure to be part of the Young SIETAR Project Lab 2011, where I submitted a webinar project, which was voted the Gold prize. In 2013, I became the Communication Coordinator and in 2014 the President. Also in 2014, I was part of the team that organized the third Young SIETAR Training for Intercultural Trainers that we hosted in Berlin, which was a great team building experience.
What I love about YS: I love being part of a global intercultural, virtual network made up of people from all walks of life who care about the same thing.
Key strengths: Versatility
