Hey, My name is Karolina and since the beginning of 2020 I have joined the YEE team as a Project and Communications Manager.
Coming originally from Slovakia, I did my masters of science in International Development in Czech Republic. During my studies I have developed strong passion for environmental issues and sustainable development. I gained lot of valuable international work experience since I was a student. I did a voluntary work for Amnesty International throughout my whole studies.
In 2017 I travelled to Ghana to conduct a case study research together with a small university research team within the Ghana WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) Project. In 2018 I did my traineeship in Brussels where I was working at the Representation of the Bratislava Region to the EU.
After the graduation in 2019 I did a graduate traineeship at the European Committee of the Regions in Brussels. For 6 months I became a part of the Commission for Natural Resources covering EU policy areas such as Common Agricultural Policy and Rural Development, Forestry, Food Production, Maritime & Fisheries, Public Health and Sustainable Tourism. After returning from Brussels I started working as a Communication & Performance Manager for youth NGO Mladiinfo Slovakia. I have a strong background in the project management, communications, sustainable development policies and NGO management.
In addition to my professional life, I am creative, open minded and positive person always trying to bring out the best in people and life.
