Goodbye from Mercedes

After six years of involvement in YEE, it is time for me to say goodbye.

It certainly has been an adventure! Working in a big network like YEE, with young people coming from so many different cultures and backgrounds and in an ever-changing environment is a challenge. But the rewards and gratifications made it definitely worth it! During my time in YEE I have met and worked with many people. I have learnt and been inspired by every one of you and even in difficult times, I could always feel that we were all driven by the same purpose and passion: the love for nature and the urge to protect it.

YEE is a great place to grow both as a person and as a professional. I am very grateful that I was offered the chance to be part of it, benefit from the network and give my contribution back to it. Now it is time to leave space for new and fresh ideas to come to YEE!
