Current occupation

Youth Worker - Project Manager - EU Councellor - European Policy Researcher (Education)

Work experience

My career in Training and Project Management all over Europe began 17 years ago while empowering my cooperation with European stakeholders, Universities consortia and European Student Councils. I implement and develop project proposals and develop those at different levels since 2006.

Since I have been part of TOTEM II in 2011 where I met life-colleagues and what inspired me to work in the Middle East for education and peacekeeping during the Arab Spring.

I began developing EU projects and structuring youth work activities while collaborating with the EU Institutions, University Consortia, Regional funders and international stakeholders.
My cooperation is extended world-wide, and I am currently researching in the field of European Education and Youth Work, following the path of analysing and investigating the impact of EU mobility Programmes and blended youth/student opportunities.
Youth work and education mean it all for me.

I am workaholic, well organised, creative and structured as a professional. I am a solution-oriented person. I like to discover new things and face new challenges.
I advocate for a sustainable world! :)
