Background & Experience

I have previously obtained a First Class BSc Geography (Hons) from Bristol University, United Kingdom and am currently reading for a MSc in Environmental & Social Science at University College London, United Kingdom. At present I am located in Bratislava volunteering at UNDP Bratislava Regional Centre. I have experience working on international development projects on the ground in Africa. I have taken part in various environmental initiatives in Namibia, and undertook an 8 week long Water and Sanitation project in Uganda in the summer of 2007. The latter involved providing Water, Sanitation and Health (WASH) education at the local primary school and to the community; constructing a water tank for the school and protecting unprotected water sources in order to improve the quality of drinking water, and subsequently personal health.


Other Remarks

About myself

Have been passionate about environmental issues and international development since a young age. I love to travel and experience different cultures and varying geographical landscapes. Moreover, I am an avid sportswoman.

What water means to me..

Essentially, a necessity for life. Everyone worldwide should have sufficient access to clean, safe drinking water within a short distance as a basic human right, yet unfortunately, my experiences in Africa have proven first-hand this contradicts reality. It is also perfect for my Tall Ship sailing adventures!
