My name is Karolina and since the beginning of 2020 I have joined the YEE team as a Project Manager!
I come from Slovakia where I was living until I decided to study abroad. I did my masters of science in International Development Studies in Czech Republic. During my studies I have developed my strong passion for environment and sustainable development. I have 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. It was a great intercultural experience focused on improving community water access and waste management.
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, Public Health and Tourism. After returning from Brussels I started working as a Communication & Performance Manager for youth educational NGO Mladiinfo Slovakia.
Although I love my beautiful hometown Bratislava I felt like I want to work in a truly international environment again. So I applied for the Project Manager position at the YEE and here I am!
In addition to my professional life, I am really creative, open minded and positive person always trying to bring out the best in people and life.
