My source of energy and inspiration is a good read, a good laugh, thinking while stirring risotto and a moment of silence from time to time. 
Boosting change by unfolding the potentials of different interests, the treasure of diverse perspectives: this is what makes me passionate about AFRIKA KOMMT!.

I am passionate about capacity development and fell in love with the African continent and its people during a journey through South Africa. This is why I am part of AFRIKA KOMMT!

When I am not working, you will probably find me outdoors hiking or climbing, volunteering  or meeting friends from all over the world.

‘Africa is rising’ for me goes beyond being just a maxim or popular rhetoric – I have seen it, I have lived it and I am IT. This is why I am passionate about raising up young African change makers through AFRIKA KOMMT!

When not at work, you will likely find me on my bike cycling to an unknown destination or with a backpack, on a train or plane, on the way to exploring a distant new land!

When not fully absorbed in detailed concept writing, personal meetings and exchange make me really passionate about my daily work.

AFRIKA KOMMT!, it’s a pleasure to be a part of you!
