My aim is to inspire people's lives, set signs against resignation and racism, live christian faith authentically and empower young people to be active, courageous and hopeful designers of their communities.

Last year I was representing the German youth at the General Assembly of the United Nations as a Youth Delegate working with the Agenda 2030 and the visions and wishes of children and youth.

As a global citizen I decided to take over local responsibility. Four years ago I initiated the initiative Power On in the rural area of Central Mecklenburg-Vorpommern (Federal State in East Germany). We have organized four childrencamps already. The team grew and with more than 50 young volunteers we start seven projects for next year:

- Childrencamp

- Youth-Construction-Camp

- Festival; Social Academy

- Exchange with South Africa

- Exchange with Tanzania

- Cape2Cape (Solar-powered Campervan going from North Europe to South Africa, visiting social projects on the way).

- we have many more ideas about how to combine sustainability and youth engagement, but the core team is very busy with their higher education. However, in 2018 we will move back to our rural area and be full-time change makers.

I have studied Individual Studies at the Leuphana University Lüneburg and I am currently studying Managing Knowledge, People and Change in Lund, Sweden.

Eu também falo Português fluentemente. 2010 eu fiz um intercambio e vivi um ano em uma familia brasileira. Eu sei que o Português de Portugal é um pouco diferente, mas eu já falei com pessoas de Portugal e pudia entender bem.
